"Inspired by one of the best dishes I've ever, Carbone's Spicy Vodka Rigatoni, I put my own spin on this very simple sauce!"

Serves 4 | Prep Time 5 mins | Cook Time 20 mins

Why I Love This Recipe

Pasta with a ton of heavy cream, what's not to love? Ironically this recipe does not include vodka.

Ingredients You'll Need

¼ Cup Olive Oil
½ a tin of Anchovies
Salt (to taste)
1 Garlic Clove Grated
½ Cup Tomato Paste
2 Cups Heavy Cream
1/3 cup vodka
1 Pound of your choice of pasta (I recommend Rigatoni or Penne)
Crushed Chili flakes (to taste)
Ground Cayenne Pepper (to taste)
1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter
Handful of Shredded Mozzarella Cheese


Heat the olive oil in a large pan add anchovies and stir until anchovies have dissolved

Add grated garlic, Meanwhile, boil the pasta water in a large pot

Add vodka and let cook on high for about 5 minutes. After 3 minutes, add tomato paste and mix the ingredients together until the tomato paste is cooked well and simmering

Add heavy cream, crushed chili flakes, cayenne pepper and shredded mozzarella cheese. Stir everything together until all the ingredients are mixed evenly

Once water is boiling, add salt and 1 pound of pasta. Keep stirring the sauce until thickened

Once pasta is al dente, drain the water. Add butter to pasta and incorporate gently

Add pasta to the large pan with the sauce and keep stirring

Mix until evenly coated and serve immediately!
