Penne with tomato-wodka sauce

penne with tomato wodka sauce

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


– 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.
