Ziti with Vodka Sauce

This is terrific with a great caesar salad, and crusty french bread to scoop up the extra sauce.


2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup sour cream (can use light)
a splash of milk or cream
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan (plus additional for serving)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil (plus more for garnish)
2 to 3 tablespoons tomato sauce
dash of white pepper
8 ounces ziti pasta, cooked and drained
1 1/2 shots vodka


1. In a medium skillet, brown the garlic in melted butter. Add the rest of the ingredients except the pasta and vodka. Stir until bubbly and heated through.

2. Add vodka to sauce and pour over the cooked pasta. Place in individual pasta bowls and sprinkle with additional Parmesan and chopped basil.


*I like to double the sauce recipe because my husband loves it so much!
*In a pinch, you can use marinara sauce in place of tomato sauce.

    Never tried vodka in a recipe before. I’m definitely intrigued, will give it a try. And thanks for including my creamy caprese pasta in your list.
