If you’ve been meaning to try the TikTok-famous Spicy Vodka Pasta, then you’re in the right place. Say hello to the scrumptiously creamy, deliciously fiery, and slightly tipsy Italian pasta dish that Gigi Hadid made famous! Best of all, it takes just 12 simple ingredients AND you can whip it up in about 30 minutes.


  • 8 oz pasta
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup vodka
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½¾  cup reserved pasta water
  • ½ cup freshly shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • Salt 
  • Black pepper
  • Fresh basil


  1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions in a large pot of salted water. Reserve about 1 cup of pasta water.
  2. Add the olive oil, shallots, and garlic to a large pan on the stove over medium-low heat. Sauté for 5 minutes until soft, fragrant, and translucent.
  3. Add the tomato paste and red pepper flakes to the pan. Sauté for 5 minutes until the tomato paste begins to caramelize and turns a darker, brick red color.
  4. Add the vodka. Cook until the alcohol evaporates off.  This should take 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add the heavy cream and combine into the sauce.
  6. Add the parmesan cheese and ½ cup reserved pasta water. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  7. Stir the cooked pasta until fully coated. Add in the butter and combine until melted.  You can also add more pasta water here to reach your desired sauce consistency.
  8. Serve with more parmesan cheese and fresh basil on top. Enjoy!
