~Spaghetti Tomato Vodka Cream Sauce With Sauteed Garlic Cauliflower~
January 13, 2015
Can I just start this post off with…. I LOVE PASTA!! I mean I was raised in a Greek household, and if we didn’t have pasta at least twice a week, something was wrong. 😛 I have been experimenting in my small kitchen for quite some time trying to come up with unique pasta recipes. Some of you might have rememberred I shared an interesting Japanese-Italian Pasta recipe a while back. Surpisingly enough the flavors were outstanding. Check out the recipe below.
This time I decided to combine a vegetable with my pasta, and the results were great! Something different, and a must try for those who love cauliflower. I added a nice tomato vodka cream sauce, and for the cream I used Chobani Greek yogurt.
Spaghetti Tomato Vodka Cream Sauce With Sauteed Garlic Cauliflower
1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Cloves Garlic (minced)
1 White Onion (diced)
1 Head Of Cauliflower cleaned (chopped)
1 Can of crushed tomatoes
1 Tablespoon Vodka
1 Pound spaghetti
1 Cup of Plain Chobani Greek Yogurt
Garnish: Parmesan Cheese/ Fresh Basil
Heat olive oil over medium heat, and add the garlic, onion, and cauliflower. Sautee for about three minutes, or until cauliflower has a golden color.
Add the tomatoes, and vodka, bring to a boil.
Cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.
Next, prepare the spaghetti according to the package directions.
Once the spaghetti is ready, drain, and add the pasta to the sauce.
