Pappardelle with Vodka Sauce

Pappardelle with Vodka Sauce

When I was at Lotsa Pasta the other day, I picked up this pretty pappardelle pasta and thought vodka sauce would be perfect with it. My kiddos love this sauce and sometimes it’s nice to have a meal we all want to eat!. It turned out to be light and fresh!

2 ounces butter

1 teaspoon basil

1 teaspoon oregano

(add crushed red pepper for a kick)

Saute garlic and onion in butter until they are translucent.

Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce and spices.
