Crawfish a la VODKA

Crawfish a la VODKA

U can use any type of pasta...I happen to LOVE penne...but yesterday I used something like a cork screw pasta...I also added brocolli because I wanted to used it up before it goes bad...

1 pound uncooked penne pasta
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
5 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes...I used rotel (if u are using the hot or original then u dont need the pepper flakes)
3/4 teaspoon tony or u can use salt
1 cup vodka (any brand)
5 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/4 cup of green onion

1 cup parm cheese

sometimes I add broccoli or mushroom...totally up to u....


crawfish tails

grill chicken

2 links sweet Italian sausage

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

If u are using the sausage link then in large skillet, heat oil over moderate heat. Remove casing from sausage and add to skillet. Cook, breaking up the meat, until brown. Add garlic and red pepper and cook, stirring until garlic is golden brown.

Add tomatoes can and salt; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.
Add vodka for about 5 minutes before u add the cream and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and add pasta, toss for 1 minute. Stir in fresh onion and cilantro and parm cheese
