  • 2

    tablespoons minced garlic

  • 1

    can crushed tomatoes - (14 oz)

  • 1/2

    cup fresh or frozen green peas

  • 1

  • 4

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. In a skillet, cook the bacon over medium-high heat until the fat is rendered and just beginning to brown, about 4 minutes. Add the onions and crushed red pepper and saute until soft and slightly caramelized, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and stir well to combine. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring. Add the vodka and cook until slightly reduced, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the peas and cream, and cook, until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the basil. Cook the pasta in the boiling water until just al dente, about 2 minutes. Drain in a colander. Add to the pasta sauce, and toss to combine. Serve immediately with grated Parmesan, if desired. This recipe yields 4 servings.
