Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 6


Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 shallot, finely chopped

  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1-2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes

  • 1/2 cup tomato paste

  • 1/4 cup vodka

  • 3/4 cup basil pesto, homemade or store-bought

  • kosher salt and black pepper

  • 1 cup heavy cream or canned coconut milk

  • 1 pound short cut pasta

  • 3 tablespoons salted butter

  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving

  • 1/4 cup fresh basil roughly chopped



Instructions

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. When the oil shimmers, add the shallot, garlic, and oregano. Cook until the shallots begin to caramelize, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, add the tomato paste and red pepper flakes, cook 4-5 minutes, until thickened. Stir in the vodka, cook another 2 minutes. Stir in the pesto and cream. Season with salt and pepper. Keep warm over low heat.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook according to package directions until al dente. Just before draining, remove 1 1/2 cups of the pasta cooking water. Drain.
  • To the vodka sauce, add the pasta, 1/2 cup pasta cooking water, and the butter, tossing until the butter has melted. Add the parmesan and basil. If needed, thin the sauce with additional pasta cooking water.
  • Divide the pasta among plates and top with basil and cheese. Enjoy!
