Molly Makes Rigatoni with Vodka Sauce | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 11 September 2018
  • Before you convince yourself there's no way that a little onion, tomato paste, and half-and-half can come together in mere minutes to make one of the best homemade pasta sauces you've ever had, hear us out. Better yet, make this vodka sauce recipe for yourself. Just try and use double-concentrated tomato paste, which packs more flavor than the standard stuff.

      @SweetNote #IAMNOTALONE I did think about that. I actually don't have table salt in my house anymore. I should fix that to make my water salty as the sea.

      @betotrono Use table salt for water because there's no point using expensive salt for the water. Use less for table salt since it will be more strong. Only use expensive salt to finish a dish with instead of cooking with it otherwise it can be expensive

      You must think I'm made of money with all this kosher salt I'm supposed to be putting in my pasta water.

                                            Tried this recipe, it was SO GUUUUD PEOPLE! I just didn’t add vodka because #1: I’m underage, and #2: I couldn’t find any. Still great and highly recommended.

                                                    Can we replace vodka with something non alcoholic?

                                                      I make this a lot and only used vodka the first time, since I found the time it took the alcohol to burn off left my onion/garlic slightly too brown (the time in the recipe is not sufficient). So I just use pasta water to deglaze instead (plus there’s now more vodka for me to enjoy later, haha)
                                                      It turns out great! I love this dish.

                                                                              I'm a dumb beginner, and I made some dumb mistakes. Here they are so y'all don't do what I did.

                                                                              1.DON'T SALT THE SAUCE. Cause it was creamy and a bit plain-tasting alone, I added some salt. The sauce was then great, but I didn't consider the saltiness of the then-cooking pasta, so when I combined the two together at the end, bam, it tasted like the ocean. The basil, parm, and oil at the end helped mask the taste, but the dish generally came out a lot poorer then it should have.

                                                                              2. USE EXTREME PRECISION WHEN POURING THE VODKA. I'm an idiot. For whatever reason, I thought it was a good idea to pour the vodka with a mixing jigger (cause you know, that's what I'm always pouring it with when making drinks). The slightest amount fell just before I got it into the dutch oven and, you guessed it, when right into the lit burner. A huge flame rose up, igniting a small pool of vodka on the stove, spreading to the inside of the dutch! It eventually weakened and could be blown out, but it was super scary for a sec. Don't be like me: use a proper measuring cup and poor directly into the dutch. On the bright side, the whole charade made me realize I need a fire extinguisher...
