Why is alcohol so good? I mean of course having a glass is amazing but I'm also talking about in food...because , some of my most favorite pasta sauces have either wine or vodka in them.
I was making my vodka sauce the other day with white wine (since I was out of vodka) and I was tempted to skip the last step of adding heavy cream to it and eat it how it was in the skillet because it just looked so pretty and smelled so good. So the next day, I did just that and here we are! SO this is basically my vodka sauce minus the cream and butter with wine + fresh garlic and shallots living in the sauce. You could leave the diced garlic and shallot as is in the sauce for texture or puree them like I did for a smoother sauce.

When you say 1/2 lb pasta, do you mean 1/2 of cooked or uncooked pasta? I loved this and your other pasta sauces but often find I have more pasta than sauce.

Hi! A standard box of pasta is usually 1lb, and I always use half a box when I'm cooking so that's where the 1/2lb comes from. It varies though depending on the shape and brand of pasta. It's tricky because certain pastas become larger than others after cooking!
