4 steps
  1. Make the Sauce

    In a large pot over medium-high heat, add in yellow onion, garlic and crushed red pepper and cook until soft. Deglaze with vodka and cook for 2 minutes. Add in tomato paste and balsamic vinegar and stir until incorporated. Add in crushed tomatoes and cook until the sauce comes to a boil. Add in heavy cream and pecorino cheese and bring back to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the vodka sauce to a blender and blend until smooth. *Omit the red pepper flakes and substitute veggie stock for the vodka for a kid-friendly version!

  2. Cook the Pasta

    Cook the pasta according to package instructions.

  3. Cook the Impossible Beef

    Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and crumble Impossible Beef or Beef Lite into the pan, searing and cooking on all sides until cooked through. Add vodka sauce to the pan, and scrape the bottom of the pan to get all those crispy, flavorful bits incorporated. When vodka sauce begins to bubble, turn to low, add cooked pasta, and stir in basil and oregano.

  4. Serve and Enjoy

    Garnish with additional finely chopped basil and grated pecorino cheese. Enjoy!
