Sun-Dried Tomato Vodka Sauce
This recipe was in partnership with Amore Brand. All opinions are my own.
Sun-dried tomatoes + vodka + raw heavy cream equals a recipe for some serious deliciousness, don’t you think?! Plus, I AM part Ukranian, and, well… vodka, duh.
Okay, pasta isn’t something that I eat on the regular, and actually, if I’m being honest, I’ve only eaten it a few times over the past handful of years. Why? Well because I just don’t love any of the gluten free products very much when it comes to pastas. BUT, I do have a carb loving, gluten-eating husband who enjoys his pasta very much. And for myself, I just simply substitute in some zucchini noodles or enjoy my sauces served over a bed of steamed veggies. That’s just how I like things.
Back to this saucey goodness.
I remember watching a Rachel Ray episode YEARS ago and she made a vodka sauce called “You Won’t Be Single for Long” vodka sauce or something like that. Ever since then, I’ve always wanted to make one, so I finally did.
Building layers of flavor into my recipes is fun and I always try to think of different ways to do that so I get some depth. The Amore brand sun-dried tomato paste was such a winner for this and added a super rich complexity to this sauce that you’d think was cooked for hours! For good measure, I added in a small handful of actual sun-dried tomatoes since I had them in the pantry.
For the creamy component of this vodka sauce, I went ahead and indulged with some raw heavy cream, since I also had that on hand. I’ve been using it in my coffee and it’s so dang good! If you want to keep this dairy free, I’d suggest using coconut cream, which you can find at Trader Joe’s. Or you can just as easily refrigerate a can of full fat coconut milk, and scoop out the solid cream.’
I think you’ll love how quick and easy this sauce comes together, and it tastes like you’ve been slaving away for hours in the kitchen!
Get your taste buds ready, cuz this one’s gonna be a crowd pleaser!
