Yep you heard right 15 minutes to dinner for this yummy vodka sauce. In the time it takes to boil the pasta your sauce will be ready, perfect for a weekday meal. This vodka sauce is so simple to make and yet so rich

I never thought I would like vodka sauce so much. Maybe it’s the cream that makes it so good. I’ve added vodka sauce to lots of things including pizza!  For me there are times when you want something other than classic marinara and this is a good alternative.

I love the Tuttoroso crushed tomatoes in basil they are the best jarred crushed tomatoes I have come across. I welcome any suggestions if you have a kind you think I would like let me know!
