> 3 cups dry penne pasta, cooked and drained
> 1 tbsp Country Crock ® Plant Butter Tub with Olive Oil
> 1/2 cup chopped white or yellow onion
> 1/2 tsp finely chopped garlic
> 1/2 cup tomato paste
> A pinch of red pepper flakes
> 1/2 cup (2 fluid ounces) vodka
> 16 fluid ounces Country Crock ® Plant Cream
> 1/4 cup (2 fluid ounces) water
> 1/4 cup grated Violife Vegan Just Like Parmesan
> 1/2 tsp kosher salt
> 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves


Melt the Country Crock® Plant Butter in a pan over moderate heat. Add onions and garlic. Cover and cook until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add the tomato paste and chili flakes. Cook until the tomato paste starts to lightly brown.
Add the vodka and stir well - scraping any bits of browned tomato paste from the bottom of the pan. Cook the mixture over high heat until the liquid is reduced by about half to concentrate the flavors.
Add the Country Crock® Plant Cream and water, and stir to incorporate the tomato paste evenly. Bring to a simmer.
Toss in cooked pasta. Add vegan parmesan, salt, and fresh basil. Serve immediately.
