Source: The Nest.com
1 med red onion chopped
1/2 cup vodka
2 cups basic tomato sauce (marinara)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 lb penne (i used rigatoni)
1 cup grated parm
1. Bring about 6Q water to a boil and add about 2T salt
2. In large saute pan, heat oil over medium heat until just smoking. Add onions and cook until light golden brown, about 6 to 7 minutes. Add the vodka and cook until liquid reduced by half, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and cream and cook until the sauce has reduced by a third, about 10 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, cook the pasta in the boiling water for 1 minute less than the package directions indicate. Drain the pasta and add it to the saucepan. Stir together over very high heat for 1 minute, until thoroughly coated. Remove pan from heat, add grated parm and toss to mix well. Divide the pasta among four bowls, grate fresh parm over each bowl and serve immediately.
