Penne pasta in vodka blush sauce
 

Ingredients for 2 portions:

1/2 cup whipping cream,
1 cup pomodoro sauce,
30 ml. vodka,
3 slices smoked salmon,
1 tsp. salmon (or lumpfish) roe,
1 tbsp. finely chopped onion,
1 tbsp. capers,
salt and pepper to taste,
1 tbsp. butter,
250 gr. dry penne pasta.

Recipe: Heat the butter in a medium frying pan and sauté the onion. Add the diced smoked salmon, and after 1 minute add the vodka, while keeping your face at a safe distance, just in case the pan catches fire. Add the pomodoro sauce, the cream and the capers, and reduce the sauce to almost half. In the meantime, boil the penne according to package instructions and toss it with the sauce. Toss well in order to coat the pasta with the sauce. Taste for salt and serve. Sprinkle with chopped parsley if desired. Garnish with the salmon roe and fresh thyme. Tip: Fresh, diced salmon filet works perfectly for this recipe, in place of smoked salmon. This recipe will taste fine even if you skip the vodka, or just have the vodka "on the side".
