pasta with vodka sauce

if i had super extra long arms, i would give my freaky self a super awesome pat on the back.

this sauce is that good.

i'm also feeling pretty proud of myself since i was able to pull this dinner together with items that i already had in the house.

feelin' pret-ty smug up in here!

i took a can of organic diced tomatoes and simmered them with an onion and a few tablespoons of butter. i let it cool and gave it a whirl in the food processor.

then, i added the cup of vodka (any time i can put booze in my cooking, i'm a happy girl) and simmered it for 20 minutes. after the 20 minutes, i added the cream and simmered it for about 5 minutes.

next came the grated parmigiano reggiano. i think the good stuff, the real deal parm, is what tastes best here.

i cooked up some linguine, browned some ground turkey, added that to the sauce and then piled the sauce on the pasta.

way to go, giada. well done!
