Gigi’s Spicy Vodka Pasta

Gigi’s recipe has been making waves all over the internet, and for good reason. It starts with heating up a generous amount of olive oil in a pan and saut√©ing some finely diced shallots and garlic until they’re tender and fragrant. Then comes the star of the show – tomato paste. Cook it until it darkens and caramelizes, and then add a splash of vodka (optional but oh-so-good).

After the vodka cooks off, it’s time to add the creaminess factor – heavy cream. Gigi doesn’t shy away from the heat and adds a whole teaspoon of red pepper flakes to make it spicy. Stir it all together until it’s creamy and luscious. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and voila! Gigi’s spicy vodka sauce is ready to be combined with cooked pasta, sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and basil for that finishing touch.

Katie’s Bacon Twist

Katie is ready to give Gigi a run for her money with her own unique twist on vodka pasta. She starts by cooking bacon until it’s slightly crispy, adding a lovely smoky flavor to the sauce. Then, she throws in a generous amount of shallots, red pepper flakes, and minced garlic – because you can never have too much garlic, right?

After the shallots are tender and the garlic is fragrant, it’s time to add the vodka for that signature kick. Katie opts for fresh San Marzano tomatoes instead of tomato paste, bringing a burst of flavor to the dish. She lets the sauce simmer until it thickens up, then adds the creaminess of heavy cream. She lets it simmer a bit longer to develop those flavors even more.

Once the sauce is ready, Katie combines it with cooked penne pasta and adds a touch of butter for extra richness. No need for reserved pasta water here! She finishes it off with a mix of grated Parmesan and Romano cheese, torn burrata, and a sprinkle of fresh basil. The result? A flavor explosion in every bite.

The Ultimate Taste Test

Now comes the moment of truth – the taste test. Katie anxiously serves both bowls of pasta to her husband, Chris, who is ready to dig in. He tries Gigi’s version first, with the orecchiette pasta and spicy vodka sauce. It’s creamy, with just the right amount of kick. But then he tries Katie’s penne pasta, and it wins him over. The bacon, the smoky flavors, the tanginess of Romano cheese – it’s a winner!

And there you have it, folks. The verdict is in, and Katie’s bacon twist on vodka pasta takes the crown. But hey, both recipes are delicious in their own right, so feel free to give them a try and decide for yourself.

Remember, cooking is all about experimenting and making recipes your own. So don’t be afraid to put your own spin on things and create something uniquely delicious.
