Spicy Vodka Pasta with SMART Fibre Penne

Spicy Vodka Pasta with SMART Fibre Penne

Inspired by Gigi Hadid's infamous Vodka Pasta recipe, this one's packed with flavour!

Serves 2

  • 250g Vetta SMART Fibre Penne
  • 1 tablespoon Bondi Blue Vodka
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 small clove of garlic, diced
  • ¼ green onion
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese
  • Basil, chopped, to serve
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil, garlic and onion. Cook until soft.
  2. Add tomato paste and cook until it appears “darker [in colour] / a bit caramelised”.
  3. Add in the heavy cream.
  4. Add vodka and cook through until evaporated.
  5. Add in the red pepper flakes. Add in more flakes if you like it extra spicy.
  6. Keep stirring until combined. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Remove sauce from the heat.
  8. Cook pasta separately. When the pasta is done, save ¼ of the pasta water before draining.
  9. Add in the butter. Stir over a medium heat til the butter has melted and the sauce is “sauccyyyy”.
  10. Add pasta – and the pasta water – to the sauce. Add parmesan cheese and stir. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
  11. Top with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese and basil to serve.
