Vodka Sauce

-1 cup of smoked ham or turkey breast 
in cubes
-1 finely chopped onion
-1/2 cup of vodka
-5 tablespoons of Tomato paste
-5 tablespoons of Double cream
-1/2 cup of Chopped parsley
-Salt & Pepper to taste
-Parmigiano or Grana Padano
-Olive oil
-1/2 pound - 500g of penne.
1 - In a saucepan (medium heat), sauté 
the onions and the ham until they get 
brown (about 3 minutes).

2 - Pour the vodka and turn the fire on 
high until the vodka catches on fire. 
 Another option is to carefully ignite the
 vodka with a stove lighter, or simply 
don't ignite the vodka if you don't want 

3 - When the fire is done, add the tomato 
paste and one cup of water, let cook for another 3 minutes on medium heat and then add the cream and the parsley.

4 - Combine the cooked pasta on the pan, turn the heat on maximum and mix the pasta in with the sauce. If the sauce is too thick, you can always add small spoons of the water that cooked the pasta.

5 - Serve with cheese and black pepper on the top.
