Ingredients:

  • 28 oz can of Crushed tomatoes

  • 2 tbsp oregano
  • 2 tbsp parsley
  • 1 cup vodka
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, for taste

Directions:

  1. In a large pot on medium-low heat, add the butter, olive oil and onions and let cook until translucent (see through).  Then add the garlic, oregano, basil, and parsley and let cook for about 5 minutes to let the aromatics from the herbs come out.
  2. Begin to add the crushed tomatoes.  With a potato masher begin to mash the tomatoes (consistency is up to you). Then add the sugar, bay leaves, salt and pepper, vodka and cream cheese, then place lid and let cook for 45 minutes stirring occasionally. 
  3. Happy Eating!

NOTE:  If you are skeptical about the vodka, don’t worry, the alcohol evaporates during the cooking process.  Goes well with your favorite pasta.
