Boy-Approved Spiked Pasta (Spaghetti with Vodka Cream Sauce)
My boyfriend P has a busy, active job and is often too busy to eat a big lunch, if any lunch at all. It's no surprise then that he comes home hungry at only 5 p.m. For those days especially, I have a list of go-to meals that can be whipped up in no time. And while P's sweet enough to try almost anything I cook, I reserve this list for only the dishes he gets excited about. Chief among them is this fabulous spaghetti alla vodka. P's not much of a foodie. I'd actually seen many versions of this dish long before, yet was always scared off by their copious use of heavy cream. Do you also have a go-to list of quick, delicious meals for those really hectic days? Spaghetti with Vodka Cream Sauce [Printable Recipe] Slightly adapted from Cooking Light Serves 3 to 4 XIAOLU'S NOTES: I HIGHLY recommend using fire-roasted canned tomatoes for this recipe -- it adds that much more depth to the flavor! Cook the pasta according to the package directions.
