    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • 3 tbsp. Chopped fresh parsley
    • 1 pound Peeled, deveined raw shrimp
    • 1 tsp. Lemon zest
    • 6 tsp. Heavy whipping cream
    • 1/4 cup Vodka
    • 28 oz. Can crushed tomatoes
    • 1/4 tsp. Red pepper flakes
    • 4 cloves Garlic, minced
    • 1/2 cup Finely chopped onion
    • 2 tbsp. Butter
    • Salt
    • 12 oz. Fettuccine pasta
03 Method
  • Step 1
    Put a large pot of salted water (1 Tbsp salt for every 2 quarts of water) on to boil for the pasta.
  • Step 2
    Melt butter in a large, thick-bottomed pot on medium high heat. Add the onion and saute 5 to 7 minutes, until lightly browned.Lower the heat to medium, add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook a minute more.
  • Step 3
    Add the crushed tomatoes to the onions. Stir in the vodka, cream, and lemon zest. Increase heat to bring to a simmer, then lower the heat to maintain a simmer.
  • Step 4
    As soon as you start simmering the sauce, add pasta to boiling salted water. Pasta should be done in 10 minutes.
  • Step 5
    After the sauce has simmered for 5 minutes, about halfway through the pasta cooking time, taste for salt and add salt to taste (you'll likely need about 1 teaspoon). Add the raw peeled and deveined shrimp to the sauce.
  • Step 6
    Cook until the shrimp is just cooked through, about 5 minutes, then remove from heat.
  • Step 7
    When the pasta is done, al dente, strain it and add it to the vodka tomato sauce and shrimp.Sprinkle with parsley and freshly ground black pepper to serve.
