Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Pasta alla Vodka

28 oz San Marzano Tomatoes
2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 pinch salt and black pepper
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1/4 cup vodka
1/4 cup reduced fat cream cheese
1 lb chicken breast
16 oz Trottole Pasta

Recipe Directions for Chicken Pasta alla Vodka

This sauce is popular because of its creamy texture that comes from cooking down tomatoes and adding heavy cream. My version is just as creamy, minus more than half the fat. Chop 2 pounds of fresh tomatoes in the food processor until smooth. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add a handful of finely chopped onion, a crushed garlic clove and pinch of salt and black pepper. Cook 5 to 6 minutes until the onions are soft. Add 2 tablespoons of tomato paste and cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Carefully add 1/4 cup vodka and the tomatoes. Simmer the sauce until it thickens and season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Stir in 1/4 cup reduced fat cream cheese until incorporated and serve immediately.
