Easy Creamy Vodka Sauce

Vodka sauce is my all time favorite pasta sauce that I thought I could only order in restaurants. More like I knew I could make it but it seems more like something you only get when eating out. Last night I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner since I hadn’t cooked in a while and was itching to make a new recipe and do a shoot and he said pasta. Instantly I thought of vodka sauce and ran to the grocery store to get the ingredients. I was so happy and also so angry with myself over how easy it is to make this sauce and have it taste just as good as your local restaurants. I can’t believe it took me this long to make it but this will not be the last time I whip out this recipe. Pasta with vodka sauce is so satisfying and comforting, especially on nights when you’ve been a little stressed out and need something quick and delicious. I hope you enjoy!
