Vodka Pasta Sauce ♥

Here is a great light version of Vodka Pasta Sauce, goes perfect woth my skinny spaghetti, for a great Sunday Italian dinner, with a Russian Twist! enjoy!  ♥

Ingredients ♥ 
1 (28 ounce) can whole tomatoes
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
½ cup onions, minced
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 garlic cloves, minced
¾ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
⅓ cup Grey Goose or another premium quality vodka, see shopping tip
1 cup reduced-fat milk (2%)
6 tablespoons fresh grated Parmesan cheese

Directions ♥

 In a blender or food processor, puree half the canned tomatoes until smooth.  Chop the remaining tomatoes into ½ inch pieces, discarding the cores.
 In a large, nonstick saucepan over medium heat, heat the olive oil.  Add onions and tomato paste and cook until onions are light golden, about 2 minutes.  Stir occasionally.  Add garlic and pepper flakes and cook for about 30 seconds.
 Stir in pureed and chopped tomatoes and add salt.  Remove pan from heat and mix in vodka.  Return pan to medium heat and simmer, stirring often, until the alcohol flavor is cooked off, about 8 minutes.  Lower heat if simmering becomes too vigorous.  Stir in milk and cook about 1 minute more, until hot.
 If you aren’t serving 6, this sauce freezes great for another time.  enjoy! ♥
