Pasta with Vodka Sauce

6 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup onion, chopped
1 cup vodka
2 28 ounce cans crushed tomatoes
6 tablespoons crushed red pepper * see note
2 cups cream
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 32 ounce bags ravioli, cheese-filled

Heat a little olive oil in a medium sauce pan. Make sure oil is hot. Add garlic and cook until golden brown. Add crushed peppers and saute with garlic until garlic is dark brown.

Add onion and cook for 3 minutes.

Add Vodka and reduce liquid by half.

Add tomatoes and cream.

Simmer to reduce liquid to the desired consistency.

Cook raviolis. Serve with Garlic Chicken and Cheesy Garlic Pull Aparts.

*NOTES- Again we love the spicy!!! You might not want to add this much crushed pepper. One time I made this for some friends and one of them got a nose bleed from the spiciness. We laugh about it now!!!
