Recipe Ingredients for Shrimp Penne Vodka Pasta

1 tbsp unsalted butter
4 tablespoons shallot
2 tablespoons garlic
2 tbsp parsley, fresh, minced
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
3 tbsp canned tomato paste
2 oz vodka
1/8 tsp salt
12 oz uncooked penne
20 leaves basil, fresh, cut into ribbons (chiffonade)
3/4 pound shrimp
1/4 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup light whipping cream
1 cup asparagus

Recipe Directions for Shrimp Penne Vodka Pasta

  1. Heat a large skillet over a medium-low heat. Add butter, shallots and garlic; sauté until shallots start to caramelize, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add parsley, sea salt and pepper, stirring once or twice. Add tomato paste and mix to form a paste. Cook for about 5 minutes, moving paste around pan occasionally; add vodka. Scrap bottom of pan with a wooden spoon and cook for about 5 minutes more.

  2. Meanwhile, bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain.

  3. Add cream to tomato sauce; reduce heat to low and simmer for about 3 minutes. Add pasta to sauce and mix to coat; top with basil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Yields about 1 cup per serving.

  4. Notes

  5. Serve immediately when the sauce is at its creamiest.

  6. If you prefer a looser sauce, add some pasta-cooking water to the sauce.
