Tortellini Alla Vodka - Chef Jean-Pierre
Tortellini Alla Vodka

    1 pound Cheese or Spinach filled Tortellini
    2 to 3 tablespoons unsalted Butter
    ¼ pound approximately Prosciutto, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
    2 tablespoon Shallots minced (red onion if you do not have shallots)
    1/4 cup Vodka
    1 1/2 cups Tomatoes - peeled seeded and chopped
    1 tablespoons canned Tomato Puree
    1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
    Salt and freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste
    ½ cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano Cheese
    Cook the tortellini 85% of the way.  Keep them undercook as they will continue to cook in the cream.  As soon as you remove them from the water, add a little bit of olive oil and rub them carefully to coat them but not breaking them.
    In a sauté pan, heat the butter, add the shallots and prosciutto and shallots.  Sauté for 2 minutes or until shallots turn light brown. Add the tomato puree and sauté for a few minute to caramelize all the ingredients together.  Add the Vodka and stir, then ignite with a match (optional).  When flames subside, add the chopped tomatoes, cream and precooked pasta let reduce for 3 to 4 minutes or until the cream thicken slightly.
    Adjust the salt and pepper.  Sprinkle with the Parmigiano and serve immediately.

It's a basic blush sauce with Prosciutto and vodka thrown in. ;)
