Roasted Cherry Tomato Vodka Sauce Pasta

Our sweet and juicy cherry tomatoes only get sweeter after a high heat roast with garlic, onions, chili flakes, and herbs, which leaves them jammy and aromatic. They are then blended with a touch of cream, and finished with a few pats of good butter, a handful of grated parmesan, and a generous amount of fresh basil. The result is a deeply flavorful restaurant-quality vodka sauce in just around 30 minutes with minimal prep that will leave you swooning in delight.
