Spaghetti in Vodka Sauce

Another recipe in the series of semi homemade food that tastes like you’ve labored for hours is this Spaghetti in Vodka Sauce. The store bought vodka sauce has tomato puree, diced tomatoes, vodka, garlic, Parmesan and Romano cheese. Adding fresh herbs and freshly grated Parmesan to this sauce only wakes up the flavors and brings out the taste of the sauce even better. If you feel like it, you can add some extra vodka too @sarchakra
