Penne Alla Vodka With Tomato and Onions

2 T olive oil
1 med onion, sliced thin
2 cloves garlic
1/2 c dry white wine
1 C whipping cream
1/3 cup tomato sauce
1/4 c grated parmesan
salt and pepper to taste
3/4 lb dry penne pasta
1/2 c vodka
chopped parsley for garnish
Fry onion in 1 T of oil until almost tender, still a little crunchy. Remove onion, add remaining oil and garlic. Cook 30 seconds, add wine. Simmer for 2 minutes and add cream, tomato sauce, and cheese. Simmer and stir together until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste and keep sauce covered at a very gentle simmer while pasta cooks. Cook paste al dente in lightly salted water and drain well. Add vodka to sauce and just bring to a simmer. Don’t cook the vodka out. Toss paste, onions, and sauce together, garnish with parsley. Let stand a few minutes so pasta can absorb sauce.
