Pearl Onions & Vodka Cream Sauce with Penne

So I had some of the Pearl Onions left over from the Tuscan Onion Confit that did not make it to the Thanksgiving table. The bag of onions came with this recipe.

2 tbsp. Olive Oil
1 pkg. of Pearl Onion (10 oz.)
1 16 oz. can chopped tomatoes with liquid
1/2 cup vodka
1 cup Cream (or half and half)
1 pound Penne Pasta
Salt and Pepper to taste

Peel and chop the onions. Heat olive oil and saute onion over low heat. When onions are translucent, add tomatoes and cook to reduce liquid, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add vodka and stir, then add cream. Let simmer for about 5 minutes, then mix in cooked pasta and serve.

Quite tasty!
