1small shallot finely diced
2-3slicesof prosciutto di parma julienned into thin strips
1cupof heavy cream

Saute shallots, garlic, and prosciutto in 2 tablespoons of butter and olive oil. Cook until translucent in color. Carefully add the vodka and simmer for a few minutes.
Add the tomatoes and the sauce and bring to a quick simmer. Season with salt and pepper as needed. Now add the cream and cook down until thickened, about 10-12 minutes on medium heat. Adjust seasonings to taste.
Serve with your favorite pasta and a good amount of grated cheese. Garnish with chopped parsley.
Tip: if sauce is too liquidy then add some of the grated cheese to it and this will thicken it up.
