This is a meatless pasta sauce that uses both Nan's and your favorite vodka. It is a lighter sauce but it is very flavorful and pairs well with a delicate pasta such as angel hair. Cook your pasta to al dente and reserve about 1/2 cup of pasta water, add a bit to the sauce, the starch from the pasta will help thicken the sauce.
