Vodka Habanero Sauce

We love a good vodka sauce with pasta. It is silky and glides over your tongue, embracing the pasta, regardless of the type you choose. We offer you this version with an additional habanero pepper element. Our habanero sauce recipe collection is incomplete without this recipe.


  • 1/2 cup vodka (the higher quality the better)
  • 4 dried habanero peppers, crushed
  • 2 fresh habanero peppers, chopped
