I used this recipe
but I eyeballed most everything. I used to browse her channel a lot for recipe ideas but then she got way too into weight loss recipes and that was a hard nope for me, which is a shame cause her Korean vegan recipes are some of my favorites. But I saw this video and had to try it since I had everything on hand already and good vodka from my chebureki recipe as well!
-the first time I made it I used penne, the second time wife wanted cavatappi. Next time I want to use ziti and bake it was vegan mozz on top
-probably less olive oil, I used enough to coat the bottom of my wok but I don't think it was 4 tbsp worth of oil. Did use more butter though I think, just took a big spoonful at the end. Probably good either way
-definitely used a whole shot of vodka
-a bit more garlic, prob an extra tsp, again eyeballing it and my wife loves garlic
-I also eyeball the tomato paste lol I didn't measure anything! but it was maybe less tomato paste, I have the kind in a tube so I just added while stirring until it was the consistency I wanted, at least two tbsp but I doubt I used as much as 4
-wayyyyy more red pepper flakes, for people who like it to actually be spicy vodka sauce 1 tsp is nowhere near enough. I used at least a tbsp and I'd still call it mild (but I have an insanely high heat tolerance so take that for what you will) I also like adding the pepper flakes in earlier with the onion and garlic to infuse the flavor with the olive oil more, it's very yummy!
Did I need to include these? Probably not
Oh also tomorrow I'm making borscht! My sad sad throat is demanding it (jk, I'm fine) and wifey bought rye bread and the veg we need for it today! Cannot wait to smell all that fresh dill, mmmm!
