Creamy ‘Pasta’ Alla Vodka

So… March is here!! I think I can speak for all of us when I say I am ready to say good-bye to the Winter and welcome Spring with open arms (and pray that the cold is past us and that I didn’t just jinx it).

You’re going to love this Vodka Sauce. Serve it over zucchini linguine and watch it quickly become a staple in your house. A dairy-free creamy vodka sauce loaded with crispy prosciutto, shallots, basil, and garlic. It is heaven.

My blogging girlfriends and I are back with another collaborative post for you! This month it is all about the SPIRALIZER aka spiraled veggies turned into healthy spiralized meals! There are a few reasons why I love the spiralizer. One because it makes the perfect alternative for linguine/noodles, and two because you can literally spiralize SO. MANY. VEGGIES.

It’s amazing. Really.

And now I bring you, my Creamy ‘Pasta’ Alla Vodka! I think of childhood when I think of vodka sauce. One of my best friends and I always used to order it before our weekly art classes. The rich creamy sauce over pasta. Nothing better! I bring you a dairy-free creamy vodka sauce loaded with crispy prosciutto, shallots, basil, and garlic. Mike asked tonight if we can have it again for dinner tomorrow! Serve it over zucchini linguine for the perfect dinner!

It is the perfect pasta alternative of your favorite classic dish, made guilt-free!

    1. Zoodles are the best and your homemade pasta sauce alla vodka sauce sounds simply amazing. Is it weird that I didn’t realize that vodka sauce actually had vodka in it? I guess I never really thought about it, but obviously it makes sense.

    2. gluten-free vodka?! Prayers have been answered! Also love love love the recipe. There’s a resto in MTL (I’ll take you there!) that has the best penne alla vodka (we can bring our spiralizers in tow lol) with BYOB and a gajillion types of mussels too. It’s one of my favs!

    3. Just ran across this today and I’m tempted to cancel the date with my husband tonight so I can make it! Ok maybe I’ll wait for tomorrow 🙂 Love that Tito’s is gluten free. Thank you for the info!
