About this recipe: Not completly authentic, but it's a simple recipe and delicious nonetheless. A generous measure of vodka is cooked down with proscuitto and vegetables. Tomatoes and cream are added to make a rich sauce for pasta.
Altered ingredient amounts. I made a much easier version of this. Firstly, fry onion and garlic in a little olive oil for about 5 mins. Then add 120ml of vodka, can of crushed tomatoes, and some chilli flakes. Let simmer for about 1 hour to let all the flavours blend. I then added in chicken. It was loved by everyone and the chicken made it more filling. - 03 Jan 2009
This sounds lovely, i will be making this but im also going to add cooked (myself) sausages chopped into chunks and i will stir this into sauce at the passata stage and simmer for 10 mins as stated and continue with recipe. I will also add Mushrooms, green pepper and toms as DEVSMITH() suggested. - 08 Mar 2010
Altered ingredient amounts. Unbelievable! This was so easy to make and delicious! I doubled the recipe, which was more than enough for my dinner party of 14. The only changes I made was omitting the celery (it wasn't missed) and using half the cream and adding just a bit of milk. A definite new family favourite. - 21 Jul 2008
