Connecticut Pasta With Vodka Sauce
55 mins (prep 20, cooking 35)
12 ingredients
4-6 servings
When we lived in North Haven, CT, we were surrounded by so many Italian restaurants. It was the first time I had ever been introduced to Vodka sauce. This recipe came from the community cookbook I got while living in North Haven and it is my husband's favorite version. I measure most of this "by taste" seasonings wise, so please do not be afraid to add as much salt, pepper, cheese, and chili as your taste buds desire. I do however measure the tomatoes, cream and vodka and 4 nice big juicy cloves of garlic is usually just plenty for us. I have updated the recipe to give appproximate measures for the salt and black pepper.
