Gigi Hadid Pasta Recipe Ingredients:
This delicious fancy-looking pasta only needs a handful of simple, affordable ingredients. You will find the detailed list of ingredients below, but these are some notes on the ingredients we recommend to use and substitutions you can make:
- Olive Oil - it’s best to go for extra virgin olive oil for richness.
- Onion - red onion or shallots are great to add a kick of umami flavor.
- Vodka - if you don’t have vodka at hand, you can use white wine or sherry instead. You can also make it without the vodka, and it’ll surely still be delicious!
- Crushed Chili Flakes is an absolute must. Add as little or as much as you want, depending on your heat preference.
- Penne is best because it can hold the rich and flavorful sauce easily. But you can also use orecchiette (or shell pasta), rigatoni, farfalle (anything short). We don’t recommend using spaghetti. Spicy vodka sauce tastes best with vessel-type pasta that can hold it well; it’s too thick for spaghetti.
Tips & Tricks
- Don’t use too much water when boiling the pasta, and add 1/2 cup of starchy pasta water to the dish when you combine the pasta with sauce.
- You can thicken the vodka sauce by adding more cream, parmesan cheese or whisking in starch from the reserved pasta water. Still, we recommend simply simmering the vodka sauce for a few extra minutes and giving it some time to reach the creamy consistency.
- Add a tablespoon of butter to the vodka sauce once all your ingredients are combined. It will boost the flavors even more.
- The spicy vodka sauce is your perfect recipe for making pasta for two. So feel free to mix in your favorite add ons like spinach, shrimp, chicken, or even scallops.
- If you are intimidated by the deglazing process, our step-by-step guide to How to Deglaze a Pan will help you.
