1 tablespoon butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
1 cup vodka
1 cup chicken stock

1/2 cup fat free half and half

Recipe Directions for Vodka Cream Sauce for Pasta

  1. Heat a large skillet over moderate heat. Add butter, garlic, and onions. Gently saute onion for 3 to 5 minutes to develop their sweetness. Add vodka to the pan, 3 turns around the pan in a steady stream will equal about 1 cup. Reduce vodka by half, this will take 2 or 3 minutes. Add chicken stock, tomatoes. Bring sauce to a bubble and reduce heat to simmer. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. While sauce simmers, cook pasta in salted boiling water until cooked to al dente (with a bite to it). While pasta cooks, prepare your salad or other side dishes.

  3. Stir half and half into sauce. When sauce returns to a bubble, remove it from heat. Toss hot pasta with sauce and basil leaves.
