  • Prepare pasta according to package directions. Reserve 1 to 1½ cups of pasta water.

  • Add olive oil to a large pan, saute shallots and garlic over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes or until shallots are translucent (do not burn garlic).

  • Add vodka, stir, and allow to reduce 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Stir in tomato puree and heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Sprinkle in 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes. Add more if you prefer a spicier sauce.

  • Add cooked pasta to sauce over low heat, adding reserved pasta water a little at a time until desired consistency is reached.

  • Remove from heat. If desired, add more salt and pepper. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese before serving.
