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!!!

Garlic Chicken

4 6 ounce boneless skinless chicken breast

4 teaspoons minced garlic

3 tablespoons olive oil

3 tablespoons crushed red peppers

Place the chicken in a bowl and just add everything to it! Feel free to add other things too. Cover it and put in the refrigerator and let it marinade for a couple of hours.

Place a skillet on medium heat and cook the chicken until its yummy!!

Now keep in mind that I love spicy food so you might not want to add that much crushed pepper. Use your own judgement. These measurement are just guesses anyway!

As I said yesterday many things were made yesterday Lets start with bread!

the Ingredients

Garlicy Butter Goodness

Cut Up Biscuits

CHEESE!!!!

Fresh Out of the Oven

On the Plate!

Cheesy Garlic Pull Aparts

3 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 12 ounce can Pillsbury Golden Layers Biscuits *see note
1 cup mozzarella cheese, part skim milk
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated

Heat oven to 425.

Melt butter in small bowl. Stir garlic, parsley and garlic powder into butter. Pour butter mixture into a pie pan.

Cut biscuits into 4 sections each (or as many as you like). Place in pan. Top with both cheeses.

Bake for 10-15 minutes until biscuits are cooked through.

Invert upside down onto a plate. (I take a knife around the edges of pan to release stuck on cheese before inverting to plate.).

*Notes! I prefer the Golden Layer Biscuit, but have used the buttermilk biscuits and it’s still delicious! If you are serving this as an appetizer serve it with warm pizza sauce. It will disappear in moments!!

Also this is supposed to feed like 6 people, my husband and I can just about finish it ourselves! Yes we are pigs!

I got this recipe here!
