Pasta alla Vodka


Serves 4

Olive oil

Unsalted butter

1 onion

6 cloves garlic, chopped finely

1/2 tsp dried oregano

400g chopped tomatoes

120ml double cream

60ml Black Cow Vodka

100g Black Cow Deluxe Cheddar

Salt & pepper

How to make it

We’ve slightly fallen in love with Black Cow Vodka, made from milk! So we’re featuring this Pasta alla Vodka recipe using their vodka, and of course, their Black Cow Deluxe Cheddar. Ghengis Khan would be proud.

  • Boil some water and add your pasta of choice – we favour penne
  • Heat some oil and butter in a skillet
  • Fry the onions and sauté until soft and brown
  • Add the garlic, oregano and crushed red pepper flakes
  • Add a can of chopped tomatoes
  • Bring the mixture to the boil, then simmer for about 20 mins, until it becomes thick
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Place the sauce in a blender with the vodka and cream. (If you don’t have a blender you can skip this step)
  • Blend until smooth
  • Return to the saucepan, then bring to a boil to cook off the vodka
  • When the pasta is done, drain and add to the tomato mixture
  • Grate in some Black Cow Deluxe Cheddar
  • Season to taste
  • Serve the Pasta alla Vodka with a final grating of cheddar

As the vodka is all cooked out this won’t get you drunk and is safe for the whole family to eat!

Beauvale by Cropwell Bishop is a slightly milder blue than Stilton, but with an excellent depth of flavour and rich, soft taste. It’s perfect with pasta and balances well with meat which is why it’s the ideal blue for this Steak Pappardelle.
