Recipe Ingredients for Penne alla Vecchia Bettola

1/4 cup olive oil
1 medium Spanish onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, diced
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 cup vodka
56 ounce plum tomatoes
1 tsp Kosher salt
1 Freshly ground black pepper
4 tablespoons fresh oregano
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Recipe Directions for Penne alla Vecchia Bettola

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. Heat the olive oil in a large oven proof saute pan over medium heat, add the onions and garlic and cook for about 5 minutes until translucent. Add the red pepper flakes and dried oregano and cook for 1 minute more. Add the vodka and continue cooking until the mixture is reduced by half.

  3. Meanwhile, drain the tomatoes through a sieve and crush them into the pan with your hands. Add 2 teaspoons salt and a pinch of black pepper. Cover the pan with a tight fitting lid and place it in the oven for 1 1/2 hours. Remove the pan from the oven and let cool for 15 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta al dente. Drain and set aside.

  5. Place the tomato mixture in a blender and puree in batches until the sauce is a smooth consistency. Return to the pan.

  6. Reheat the sauce, add 2 tablespoons fresh oregano and enough heavy cream to make the sauce a creamy consistency. Add salt and pepper, to taste, and simmer for 10 minutes. Toss the pasta into the sauce and cook for 2 minutes more. Stir in 1/2 cup Parmesan. Serve with an additional sprinkle of Parmesan and a sprinkle of fresh oregano on each plate.
