Vodka Sauce Recipe

(PLEASE, make variations! I never make anything the same way twice, this is just a guideline.)

Yield: Enough sauce for 6-7 people.
Prep Time: Up to 2 hours.

1 tb butter
1 tb olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 cup vodka or white wine
1 clove garlic, minced
oregano, salt, basil, rosemary, thyme, crushed red pepper to taste
1/2 pint cream

**Tomato options:
A) 1 28-oz can plum tomatoes, drained, seeded, chopped
B) 2 small cans plum tomato paste
C) 8 to 10 fresh plum tmatoes, chopped and seeded <--- I PREFER THIS!!
Melt butter with oil in large sauce pan. Add onions and saute until translucent, around 8 minutes.
Add tomatoes and cook until they're soggy - you may have to add water, let it boil out, repeat a few times. Be patient!
Stir frequently.
Add cream, vodka/wine, and seasonings and boil until sauce consistency.
