Guest Blogger Week Continues - Vodka Riggies - and dessert

One thing this family DOES know is food! You will hopefully soon see recipes from Regina's Mom, Bobby's cousin, and Matt's brother. Today's Guest Blogger is Regina's cousin Susan.

Sue & Scott's Vodka Riggies Recipe

Ingredients:

1 small onion (Bermuda is called for, but I've used anything in season), diced
1 large clove of garlic, minced
1/2 lb. of prosciutto ham, diced (bite-size)
4 oz. vodka
1 can diced tomatoes
4 bay leaves
3 oz. heavy cream
Olive oil
Box of Rigatoni (or Ziti) pasta, cooked and drained

Directions:
Sautee prosciutto and garlic. Add onion and continue to sautee until onions are soft.

Add vodka - mixing well, then stir in diced tomatoes and bay leaves. Let simmer, covered, for 20-30 minutes. Remove bay leaves once simmering is complete, then mix in heavy cream.

Place cooked pasta in a large serving bowl, add vodka mixture and combine well.

Serve with a nice green salad.

Hope you like it :)

(and even though Susan did not send photos of her Vodka Riggies, she sent this real live package in the mail instead...and they did not need re-crisping - they were just perfect!!! We will work on her to get this recipe to share with you one of these days. In the meantime - we aren't sharing anything more than the pictures.)

Awesome pics guys! So glad to *see* they made the trip without breaking into a million pieces - haha!! Thanks for posting.

I will get you the pizzelle recipe soon, but it's the one that came with the pizzelle iron, so not super original by any means ;)
