Ina Garten's Pasta

Here's a recipe Ina Garten cooked on one of her shows; I've made it twice now and it's quite good.

Pasta Sauce

1/4 c. olive oil
1 small Spanish onion, chopped
3-6 cloves garlic

Cook the onion and oil on the stove for about five minutes, adding the garlic for the last two minutes.

1 t. dried oregano
1/2 T - 1 T of red pepper (1 T will be quite hot)
1/3 cup vodka
2 large cans of tomatoes, crushing the tomatoes as you add them
1 t. salt
pepper, to taste

Cover in a pan and cook at 375 for 1.5 hours
After it's cooled, puree the sauce in a blender.  Add some fresh chopped oregano

Transfer the sauce back to the stove and add 1/2 cup of heavy cream.

Cook the sauce on the stove for about 10 more minutes with a dente pasta (so the pasta will absorb some of the sauce) and fresh parmesan cheese and more fresh oregano.

1 recipe will serve 5-6.
You can freeze any sauce that you don't use!
