Vodka Sauce

I love pasta. I also love a variety of pasta sauce.
This sauce  had slightly more of a vodka bite than I'm used to, but was delicious (with ravioli and chicken cutlets!).

2 tbs olive oil
2 tbs salted butter
1 medium onion, chopped finely
3 cloves garlic, minced
1C vodka
1 (14oz) can tomato puree
1C heavy cream
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1C grated Parmesan cheese

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, add olive oil and butter.
  2. Once butter is melted, add in onion and garlic.
  3. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Pour in vodka, stir, and cook for 3 minutes.
  5. Reduce heat to low and stir in tomato puree and heavy cream.
  6. Allow to simmer, stirring periodically.
  7. Stir in crushed red pepper flakes.
  8. Stir in cheese.
  9. Let cook for 5 minutes, stirring periodically.
  10. Enjoy!
