1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook onion, and garlic in oil until soft. Add prosciutto and vodka. Simmer until almost all liquid is gone.


Add tomatoes and herbs. Simmer for 10 minutes.


Stir in half and half, and heat for 3 minutes. Meanwhile, cook pasta in boiling salted water until done. Drain. Serve sauce over noodles.
