Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons butter or margarine

1/2 cup minced onion

1 cup canned crushed tomatoes

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1/3 cup vodka

Directions

In a large skillet, heat the oil and butter over medium heat until the butter is melted. Add the onion and sauté until tender but not browned, about 2 minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes, heavy cream, salt, and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the vodka and continue cooking for 5 minutes or until the vodka evaporates slightly and the sauce thickens, stirring occasionally.

Serve immediately over hot cooked pasta and top with grated Parmesan cheese, if desired, or store in a covered container in the refrigerator until ready to reheat and serve.
