The Creamy Tomato Vodka Sauce is the real secret to this dish. It is very different from a marinara style tomato sauce. Most grocery stores carry at least one band of this. We really like the one from Costco. Originally I wanted to use Rachel Ray's
You Won't Be Single For Long Vodka Cream Pastathat has the famous reputation of being so good it causes people to fall in love. Since I'm already in love it was a lot easier to buy the vodka cream sauce and have more time with my sweetie.
This recipe for two only needs about half a jar of the sauce. Save the rest for a nice pasta meal the next day. I use the remaining polenta for breakfast with some scrambled eggs. You can use any greens you like, either fresh or frozen. If frozen just cook them in the pan until they are warm. If you prefer fresh mushrooms by all means use those. Most of these ingredients can be kept in your pantry or found at any local grocery store. The polenta when you buy it in the roll does not need to be refrigerated until after it is opened.
