serves four 

1 onion, diced
6 slices of bacon, cut into small pieces
1 cup of vodka
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 quart of marinara or other red sauce
1 pound rigatoni

In a skillet over medium high heat, cook your bacon until it is browned, about 10-12 minutes. If you prefer, drain fat. Add onion to the bacon and cook 2-3 minutes more. Add your quart of red sauce to the pan, stir and bring to a simmer. Add the vodka, simmer and reduce for 20 minutes. While the sauce is reducing, bring a big pot of water to a boil and add your pasta. Cook according to manufacturer's directions and drain. When the vodka is reduced, stir in the cream and combine. Add the parmesan cheese and allow to cook until it's melted. Pour the sauce over the drained pasta and stir to combine.
