Basic Vodka Sauce

This is my second post about vodka sauce.  The original one, here, is a heavier sauce and great for a hearty pasta meal.  This one is lighter in taste and texture, which made for a wonderful base for last night's soup (that's my next post).  For now, here's the sauce recipe:

1/4c butter
1 medium onion, diced
3 cloves garlic
1/2c vodka
1 (28oz.) can crushed tomatoes
1c heavy cream

1.  In a medium size pot, over medium heat, saute onion and garlic in butter until soft and aromatic.

2.  Add vodka.  Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes.

3.  Add crushed tomatoes and reduce heat to low. 

4.  Allow to simmer approximately 20-30 minutes.

5.  Pour in heavy cream and cook for another 20-30 minutes.  
Once you start making your own sauce, you'll never buy the jarred stuff again!
Cheers!
