Ingredients

  • 2

    Tbsp olive oil

  • 1

    Large onion, thinly sliced

  • 2

    Garlic cloves, minced

  • 1

    Tbsp minced oregano

  • 1

    Tbsp minced thyme

  • 2

    Tbsp chopped basil

  • 4

    Large tomatoes, finely chopped

  • 1/2

    Cup vodka

  • 1

    Cup heavy cream

  • 1

    Lb medium peeled and deveined or precooked cocktail shrimp, thawed

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1

    Lb dried penne, cooked according to package instructions, drained, rinsed, covered and kept warm

Directions

Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat Add the onion and cook, stirring often until soft and translucent, about 3 minutes Add the garlic, oregano, thyme, and basil, stir for about 30 seconds Add the tomatoes, stir well, and cook for 10 minutes, or until the tomatoes have broken down and most of the liquid has evaporated Remove the pan from the heat and add the vodka. (By removing the pan from the heat, you reduce the chance that the alcohol will flame. If the vodka does flame, simply place the lid over the pan to put out the flame.) Stir until the vodka is well incorporated with the tomato mixture Place the pan back over medium heat and add the cream When the sauce comes to a simmer, add the raw shrimp, and cook, stirring constantly, until pink and firm, about 2 minutes. If using pre-cooked shrimp, simply allow them to heat through. Season with salt and pepper. Add the penne to the sauce and toss until the pasta is well coated and heated through. Serve immediately
