Spaghetti vodka

Posted by Claudia Moser on 9:14 AM


3 tablespoons olive oil

3 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped

2 whole dried chillies, crumbled

1 teaspoon dried oregano

600 g tinned crushed tomatoes

150 ml vodka

150 ml double cream

400 g spaghetti

50 g parmesan, freshly finely grated


Heat the olive oil in a saucepan, then add the garlic, chillies and oregano, and cook for 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, then leave to simmer for at least 30 minutes, or until thick.

Cook the spaghetti in boiling salted water until al dente. During the last few minutes of the pasta cooking, add the vodka to the tomato sauce and let simmer for a couple of minutes, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the cream and bring back to a simmer.

Drain the pasta and combine with the sauce and the parmesan, stirring well to coat each strand.

Serves 4.

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
