Creamy Vodka Pasta
There's nothing better than finishing off a long week with a cozy comfort meal. This Creamy Vodka Pasta is constantly trending, and for good reason! We love this simple recipe that comes together in no time.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 4

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
½ small onion, minced
1/4 cup tomato paste
2 tablespoons vodka
½ cup Califia Farms Extra Creamy Almondmilk
1 pound pasta shape of your choice, we used fusilli
1/4 cup pasta water (adjust with more if needed)
Dash of nutritional yeast (optional)
Dash of red pepper flakes (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

In a pan with a drizzle of olive oil, sweat out garlic and onions until they are translucent and shimmering
In the meantime, heat another pot with water until boiling
Salt the boiling water and add in dry pasta, cook until al dente (usually 1-2 minutes less than the directions on the box)
Add in tomato paste and let it cook down until it's a burnt red color
Add in vodka and reduce that down
If you prefer to omit the vodka, you can use a squeeze of fresh lemon juice in its place, or avoid completely
Next, add in Extra Creamy Almondmilk and mix until fully incorporated
Toss in pasta and pasta water, and stir until each noodle is fully coated in the sauce
Feel free to adjust with nutritional yeast or other seasonings at this point
Finish with salt, pepper and serve!
