  • add garlic cook 2 minutes stirring well
  • add tomatoes juice and all to the pan,simmer 10 minutes
  • add salt , pepper, basil, and vodka
  • cover and simmer10 minutes
  • puree with a stick blender(I don't know what those contraptions are called)or just use you regular blender but be careful and put a tea towel over the top and vent the lid a bit.
  • put sauce back in the pan and add the cream and stir
  • adjust salt and pepper after tasting
  • Add cooked pasta to the pan
  • toss to coat
  • let all that good creaminess get all over that pasta.
  • If your feeling fancy place the pasta in your favorite bowl from Grandma and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  • Yes, the "good stuff" would be nice but, let's face it ,I never have any so the the "green capped" stuff is just fine
  • enjoy with some salad and warmed Italian bread
