The Lazy Teacher's Penne Vodka Sauce

Teaching is tough. Some days you need a stiff drink, others you need yourself some comfort food. This recipe is my go-to easy dinner when I need the sweet comforts of vodka and carbohydrates. Enjoy!

  • 2 tablespoons butter 
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 
  • 3/4 cup Vodka
  • 28oz can tomato sauce 
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped 
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated

1. Heat butter and oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until translucent.

2. Pour in vodka and cook for a few minutes (until the alcohol cooks off).

3. Add in tomato sauce and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper and saute for a few minutes.

4. Reduce heat and stir in heavy cream. Add cheese and serve over cooked pasta.
