This is my favorite Alla Vodka recipe anywhere. The secret: tomato paste and pasta water. Tomato paste has a more concentrated flavor, and when mixed with some pasta water gives the sauce a smoother, velvety texture.
I like rigatoni tubes because they catch more sauce. Drizzle with some olive oil and cheese at the end and you have a restaurant quality meal in 30 minutes. Make it vegetarian without the Italian sausage or add another favorite protein instead.
This beautiful creamy, glossy dish is calling your name.
