Quick Vodka Sauce for Chicken Ricotta Meatballs

I made these meatballs for the meatball project, and decided vodka sauce would be a good match for this recipe and the chicken sausage one I made before. Here’s the sauce I made — these were the meatballs, but I just used the food processor rather than a meat grinder to grind the thighs this time.


1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 can tomatoes
1 cup vodka
2 tbsp tomato paste
3 tbsp or so half and half
salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup chopped basil
1 tbsp olive oil

Heat oil in pan. Sautee onion and garlic until soft. Add vodka and simmer for about five minutes. Add tomato paste and tomatoes and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in cream and basil. Season to taste.
