Pasta With Vodka-Tomato Sauce


Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chopped onion and red pepper flakes and saute just until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add vodka and ignite with a long match. Simmer until the flames subside, shaking pan occasionally (about 2 minutes). Increase the heat to high, add the cream and boil just until mixture thickens (about 3 minutes). Add the tomato sauce and basil and cook 2-4 minutes. Cook pasta, drain and add to sauce, along with prosciutto and 1/3 cup of cheese. Place pasta on plates, garnish with parsley and serve with grated cheese. 2 servings.
