    Rachel Ray Vodka Cream Pasta (You Won't Be Single For Long)

    Really she calls this "you won't be single for long" vodka cream pasta...

    I had this one forever before I finally made it, sooooo good!!! I actually only had a 15 ounce can of tomatoes so I also used a 15 ounce can of tomato sauce which was REALLY good! The kids devoured it.

    Ingredients
    Makes 4 Servings
    1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, once around the pan in a slow stream
    1 tbsp butter
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 shallots, minced
    1 cup vodka
    1 cup chicken stock
    1 32 oz can crushed tomatoes
    Coarse salt and pepper
    16 oz pasta, such as penne rigate
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    20 leaves fresh basil, shredded or torn
    Crusty bread, for passing

    Directions
    Heat a large skillet over moderate heat. Add the extra virgin olive oil, butter, garlic and shallots. Gently sautť the shallots for 3-5 minutes to develop their sweetness. Add the vodka to the pan – three turns around the pan in a steady stream will equal about 1 cup. Reduce the vodka by half, about 2 or 3 minutes. Add the chicken stock and the tomatoes. Bring sauce to a bubble and reduce heat to simmer. Season with salt and pepper.

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

    Stir the cream into the sauce. When the sauce returns to a bubble, remove it from the heat. Drain the pasta. Toss the hot pasta with the sauce and the basil leaves. Pass the pasta with crusty bread.

    I made this one today and it was VERY good! I really loved cooking with the shallots...an ingredient I don't often use. It added a subtle sweetness to the sauce. I forgot to get some chicken stock so I sub'd with water, and I used a whole head of garlic just 'cuz I luv the stuff!
