Rich tomato sauce gets a boost with the addition of vodka, cream, and ground chicken — and tender farfalle (bow tie) pasta ties it all together. Perfect to enjoy for lunch or dinner, my Farfalle a la Vodka with Chicken is quick and easy to prepare.


Units Scale
  • 1 lb Organic Farfalle Pasta
  • 28 oz. Crushed Fired Roasted Tomatoes
  • 1 lb Ground Chicken
  • 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Chicken Stock
  • 1/4 cup Vodka
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 2 tsp All-Purpose Flour
  • 3 tsp Minced Garlic

Seasoning for the chicken:

  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Ground Thyme
  • 2 tsp Oregano
  • 2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan Salt

Seasoning for the sauce:

  • 1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
  • 2 tsp Oregano

  1. Place the ground chicken into a large bowl and season with chicken seasonings.
  2. Cook chicken at medium heat for 5 minutes until pink is removed. Remove from heat.
  3. Add butter to the same cooking pan along with minced garlic and flour. Add vodka to the cooking pan and cook on high for 5 minutes.
