Recipe 94: I tried this dish for the first time in the house of some family friends and from that day for a long time, when i was going to a restaurant i was often ordering that. i just like it a lot! So was a long time now that i wasn’t eating it and because a friend of mine had some good vodka at home, i decided to cook it.
Here the ingredients for 4 people: 400-500gr pennette pasta, 75gr pancetta, 200-250 gr single cream, 2 big spoons of tomatoes concentrate, 4 spoons of natural vodka, 50gr butter, onion, chillies, Parmesan and salt.
Put the butter in a pan with the onion and the chillies cut in little pieces. When the onion become goldish, add the pancetta and let it cook. In the meantime put some water to boil and add some salt.
When the water will boil, put the pasta and wait for the time written on the bag (taste it 2 minutes before and take it off one minute before the time written, because you will place it in the pan with the sauce for some seconds).
In the meantime, add the tomatoes concentrate or passata to the sauce, and when well mixed, you can add the cream. I normally like the cream when it cooks a bit before to touch the pasta. It take all another consistency.
When the pasta will be ready, just add the vodka to the sauce and mix it all. Drain the pasta and place it in the pan to absorb all the sauce.
Now you can serve it with some Parmesan and a parsley leaf.
