Creamy Vodka Sauce is one of the best pasta sauces we've ever tasted. It's very rich, so serve it with a light salad for balance.

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1 cup canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/3 cup vodka

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil and butter over medium heat until the butter is melted. Add the onion and sauté until tender but not browned, about 2 minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes, heavy cream, salt, and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the vodka and continue cooking for 5 minutes or until the vodka evaporates slightly and the sauce thickens, stirring occasionally.
  2. Serve immediately over hot cooked pasta and top with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired, or store in a covered container in the refrigerator until ready to reheat and serve.

             Serves 4 to 5, enough for 12 ounces of pasta.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Awesome! I added a little bit of crushed red pepper flakes for a little kick! Delish!

My bad I just realized that it says 1 cup of crushed tomatoes and not one can, so obviously the size doesn't matter Lol

I love vodka cream sauce. Is the can of crushed tomatoes 28oz or another size?

Best vodka sauce ever!!!!!

We're so glad you liked it!

Use the heavy cream. . . Had company for dinner and thought I could reduce fat and use half & half . . A mistake. . . This sauce is wonderful with heavy cream!! I also added two cloves of garlic.

Can I use milk instead of heavy cream to cut down on calories?

Simply delicious!
