This 1 Syn Creamy Tomato Vodka Pasta is a super quick and easy, and it’s a great way to use up that Christmas vodka lurking at the back of the cupboard.
Usually Vodka Pasta, or Pasta alla Vodka, is made with heavy cream which isn’t very Slimming World friendly, so we’ve cut the syn value right down by using Tomato & Basil flavoured Quark. If you can’t get your hands on any then you can just use regular Quark, or even some Philadelphia Lightest if you don’t mind adding on a few more syns.
The dish also traditionally uses Penne pasta, but being the rebels we are at Pinch of Nom we’ve used Fusilli instead. It really doesn’t matter what pasta you use…..the secrets in the sauce anyway!
This 1 Syn Creamy Tomato Vodka Pasta is perfect recipe for easy entertaining, you can have it done and on the table in less than 30 minutes. Plus you could always add some chicken or prawns if you don’t fancy the vegetarian version.
Speaking of vegetarian options, you’ll notice we’ve used a small amount of Marmite in this dish. Normally we’d use Worcestershire Sauce, but as we wanted to keep this vegetarian so Marmite it is!
