Now that I reached 100 posts on my dutch recipe blog, I also want to translate some and add them to the english version.

This recipe comes from a book where all the recipes have maximum 6 ingredients.  Surprising in this recipe is the combination of tomatoes and wodka in a main course. And not just a little bit of wodka, half a liter of wodka!  You can make it with 0,5 liter, but I make it with 0,5 deciliter, which is more correct I guess.

Ingredients (for 4 people):

  • 1,25 dl olive oil
  • 10 plum tomatoes
  • 450 grams penne
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 110 gram black olives
  • 0,5 dl wodka
  • 225 gram feta cheese

Directions:

  • Boil the plum tomatoes for 1 minute, and then peel them. Cut them small and remove the seeds.
  • Crumble the feta cheese.
  • Cut the olives into small pieces.
  • Cut the garlic clove into fine pieces.
  • Heat a pan with  tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Add half of the tomatoes and let them cook for 10-15 minutes. Add pepper and salt as you wish.
  • Put the tomato sauce aside.
  • Cook the penne al dente and put it aside as well.
  • Now heat the pan again with the remaining olive oil.
  • Stir-fry the garlic for about 2 minutes and then add the remaining tomatoes.
  • Let them fry for 2 minutes and then add the wodka.
  • Add the tomato sauce and let it cook for 6-8 minutes, until the alcohol has evaporated.
  • Now add the penne, the olives and the feta cheese and stir well.
  • When they have warmed up, you can serve immediately.
