I wanted to feature a killer recipe from my dear friend Rosanna Bowles… a legendary award-winning international tableware designer. Rosanna is an entertaining extraordinaire. Not because she makes everything so elegant and perfect (because she does) but rather because she entertains with such ease. Never a fuss, just simple, elegant , delish and comfortable. I always feel at home in her house.
Rosanna Designs is headquartered in Seattle, Wash., Rosanna emerged a leader and trend-setter in the home-wares and décor industry. With millions of tableware and product sold worldwide, Rosanna became an acclaimed global lifestyle brand. You can find her designs here.
Rosanna’s tomato vodka pasta recipe is one of my favorites so I wanted to share it here for all my Gal Pals to try. This tomato vodka sauce recipe and 49 others can be found in Rosanna’s Coming Home Book. Buy it here.
- 1 large carrot
- 2 ribs celery with leaves
- 1 onion
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1/2 cup (120 ml) good quality extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 (28-ounce) (794 g) cans San Marzano Roma Tomatoes

- 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 g)sugar (if necessary)
- 1/4 cup (60 ml) heavy cream

Dice the carrot, celery, onion, and garlic (this can also be done in a good processor).
Put the oil in a large saucepan and place over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the chopped vegetables to the pan and saute over medium heat until just soft, about 5 minutes. Pour sauce over noodles yum!
This recipe is a proven winner!
