  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the finely chopped onion and cook for about 5 minutes, or until softened. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant.
  2. Stir in the vodka and let it simmer for 10 minutes. This step will allow the alcohol to cook off and the flavors to meld together.
  3. Add the crushed tomatoes, heavy cream, and crushed red pepper flakes (if using). Bring the sauce to a simmer and let it cook for another 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. While the sauce is simmering, cook your pasta according to the package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  5. Once the sauce has thickened, season it with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese until it's completely melted and well incorporated.
  6. Toss the cooked pasta with the vodka sauce, making sure each strand is coated evenly. Serve immediately, and garnish with chopped fresh basil if desired.

Variations and Tips

Now that you know how to make a basic vodka pasta sauce, consider these variations and tips to personalize your dish:

  • Add protein: Brown some ground beef, sausage, shrimp, or chicken before adding the onions and garlic. This will turn your vodka pasta sauce into a heartier, more satisfying meal.
  • Spice it up: If you're a fan of spicy food, increase the amount of crushed red pepper flakes to suit your taste. You can also add a pinch of cayenne pepper or hot sauce for an extra kick.
  • Experiment with herbs: Try adding different fresh herbs, such as parsley, oregano, or thyme, to add extra depth and flavor to your vodka pasta sauce.
  • Go gluten-free: For those with gluten sensitivities, simply use gluten-free pasta in place of regular pasta. Be sure to double-check the vodka label, as some brands may contain gluten.
