The Week of Eating in: Tuesday — Pearl onions & vodka cream sauce with penne

I decided to cook one of my favorite quick pastas for day two of the Week of Eating in with the leftovers doing double duty as lunches for days three and four.

PEARL ONIONS & VODKA CREAM SAUCE WITH PENNE
Ingredients: 1 pkg pearl onions, peeled and halved; 1 tbsp olive oil; 1 16-oz can diced tomatoes; 700g penne (~3/4 of a large pkg); 1/2 cup vodka; 1 cup half-and-half; salt and pepper to taste. 
Instructions: Cook penne according to package. Meanwhile, Heat oil and saute onions until translucent. Add tomatoes and cook to reduce for about 15 min. Season with salt and pepper. Add vodka and stir, then add cream. Simmer for 5-8 min, then combine with penne.

A demain!
