Default Smoky Pasta alla Vodka

This is on the menu tonight and hope to have some decent pictures. We got the sausage on Amazon out of Chicago.

It came out just wonderful and like nothing I've ever had before. The salumi was on the spicy hot side but not overpowering. The pasta is called strascinati, a product from Naples, which we got at DiLautenti's at Pikes Place Market. We have enough left over for another meal, and enough sauce to freeze for a future meal with shells.

We didn't get a picture of the sauce after the whipping cream and vodka were added.

What an intriguing-sounding and -looking dish, John!

Spreadable salami! I'm all over that! And those round flat discs of pasta - wow!

I will be looking for those two ingredients to try!

I do love vodka sauce, too!

Great job!

I'd never seen that pasta before. The package stated no cooking time so I kept the boil on till I felt it was al dente. With the large Italian community in Boston, I'm sure there are stores that carry it.

The salami mixed with butter on bread will be soon.

When having any pasta "alla Vodka", vodka can also be used as a condiment!

Last April, when I had my other knee replaced, I was taking oxycodone and quit the vodka martini's. Ever since I've felt like I don't care to go back to them. I'm fresh out of Italian wine so we had a bottle French pinot noir which was quite good.

Tonight was the leftovers and have to say it was better a day old. The pasta plumped up with the sauce a lot more. I've got one small bit left that will go in the freezer for a school lunch. I can't wait to try this again and will be getting more of this weird pasta.

Lee, this is where we get nduja. She got it on amazon but sure you can find it in Boston.

Damn! I THOUGHT "spreadable salami" sounded familiar!

Might be good on your cauliflower rice?

Thanks, John!
