This vodka sauce is made with just enough cream to let the delicious taste of tomatoes take centre stage. Smooth and seasoned with fresh basil, it is enhanced by a nice parmesan flavour and a subtle nutty aroma. While vodka sauce is traditionally served with penne, it is just as delicious with gnocchi or tortellini. It's also a great starting point for a cannelloni recipe.
Nothing rivals with the taste of Italian tomatoes ripened under the Mediterranean sun and seasoned with fresh, locally grown aromatics. If Favuzzi sauces have a velvety texture, comparable to a homemade sauce, it is partly because they are prepared in small batches and cooked over an open flame, the same technique traditionally used by Italian mammas, allowing the water to evaporate gradually.
