An Original Recipe by Lorraine Elliott

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Serves 8

  • 500g/1.1lbs dried pasta (penne is most often used)
  • 1250ml/44flozs. your favourite tomato pasta sauce (I used this homemade tomato sauce)
  • 1/4 cup/60ml/2flozs vodka
  • 1/2 cup/125ml/4flozs. tomato paste
  • 1 cup/250ml/8.8flozs. cream
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 8 mini burrata cheeses (one per person) 100g each
  • Lulu's Remedy chilli oil (or your favourite chilli oil)

Please note: the pasta sauce above that I used has buter, onion and garlic therefore omitting the need to add these as it is already delicious and seasoned on its own.

Step 1 - Cook the pasta in a large pot in plenty of salted water. While it is cooking make the sauce. Heat the pasta sauce up in a saucepan and add vodka and tomato paste to the pot and simmer for 10 minutes or so.

Step 2 - Stir in cream and cheese and taste for seasoning adding salt and pepper to taste add the drained, cooked pasta. Spoon into bowls and top each bowl with a mini burrata and drizzle Lulu's Remedy chilli oil on top.
