1. Vodka Sauce Pizza

Vodka Sauce Pizza

Vodka sauce is one of my favorite things to buy in a jar.

It’s thick, creamy, and full of flavor, and it just takes minutes to turn it into an impressive dish.

One of my go-to recipes is vodka sauce pizza.

It’s so easy to make, too. Here’s how:

  1. To start, simply preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Then, take a store-bought pizza crust (I like the kind that comes in a thin, rectangular shape) and spread a generous layer of vodka sauce over the top.
  3. Next, add your favorite toppings. I like to keep it simple with just mozzarella cheese and basil, but you could also add pepperoni, sausage, or even veggies like mushrooms or peppers.
  4. Once your pizza is topped, bake it for 15-20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and crispy. 


You’ve just created an impressive and delicious dish that only took minutes to make.

If you’re looking for an easy recipe to impress your guests (or just yourself), look no further than vodka sauce pizza.

Quesadillas are a simple, but delicious dish that can be made with jarred vodka sauce.

The sauce adds a pleasant flavor to the quesadillas, and the texture is both smooth and creamy.

The dish is quick and easy to make, and can be easily tailored to your guests’ tastes.

For example, you could add grilled chicken or shrimp to the quesadillas for a heartier meal.

You could also top them with sour cream, salsa, or guacamole.

If you’re looking for a unique and tasty appetizer or main dish, quesadillas made with jarred vodka sauce are a great option.

8. Vodka Sauce Meatballs on Ricotta Toast

Vodka Sauce Meatballs on Ricotta Toast

Here’s a delicious and easy recipe for vodka sauce meatballs that are perfect for any occasion.

If you’re looking for something to impress your guests, this is it!

The flavor is out of this world, and the texture is so tender and juicy.

The best part is that it only takes a few minutes to prepare.

Just pop everything in the oven and let it do its thing.

I like to serve mine on top of ricotta toast with a little extra vodka sauce on the side.


Here are two tips to make sure your meatballs turn out perfectly:

  • Use good quality ground beef for the best flavor and texture.
  • To make things even easier, you can buy pre-made frozen meatballs. Just be sure to cook them until they’re piping hot all the way through before adding them to the sauce.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!

9. Cheesy Meatball Sandwich with Spicy Vodka Sauce

Cheesy Meatball Sandwich with Spicy Vodka Sauce

There’s nothing quite like a hearty, cheesy meatball sandwich.

And when you add in a zesty, spicy vodka sauce?

Even better.

This recipe is easy to make and is sure to please your guests.

The key to this dish is to get the flavor balance just right.

You don’t want the vodka sauce to overpower the meatballs, but you also want it to be flavorful enough to stand out.

The trick is to add just enough spice to the sauce.

I like to add a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes, but you can adjust the amount depending on your preferences.

Another important tip is to cook the meatballs until they’re nice and crispy on the outside.

This gives them a great texture and helps to keep them from falling apart when you bite into them.

Finally, be sure to toast the bread before adding the meatballs and sauce.

This will help to absorb some of the excess moisture and prevent the bread from getting soggy.

10. Risotto Alla Vodka

Risotto Alla Vodka

Risotto alla vodka is a rich and flavorful dish that is perfect for entertaining guests.

The key to making a perfect risotto is to cook the rice slowly, allowing it to absorb the flavors of the broth.

I like to use jarred vodka sauce as the base for my risotto, as it adds a depth of flavor that you can’t get from using plain tomato sauce.

The other ingredients in this dish are relatively simple, but don’t skimp on the quality of the Parmesan cheese – it makes a big difference in the taste of the final dish.

This recipe is not difficult to make, but it does require a bit of patience.

The best part about risotto is that it can be made ahead of time and reheated when you’re ready to serve it.

Just add a little extra broth when you reheat it to ensure that the rice doesn’t dry out.

Risotto is always a hit with my guests, and I’m sure it will be a hit with yours, too!

11. Baked Gnocchi with Vodka Sauce

Baked Gnocchi with Vodka Sauce

One of my favorite recipes to make with jarred vodka sauce is baked gnocchi.

The dish is flavorful and has a great balance of taste and texture.

It’s also relatively easy to make, which is always a bonus in my book.

Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your dish:

  • If you’re looking for an extra burst of flavor, try adding some green onions or garlic to the mix.
  • To add a bit of color and visual interest, top the dish with some chopped tomatoes or shredded cheese before serving.
  • For a heartier meal, add some cooked chicken or sausage to the gnocchi before baking.

This dish is perfect for serving to guests, as it can be easily doubled or tripled to accommodate a larger crowd.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

12. Salmon with Vodka Sauce and Parsley Salad

Salmon with Vodka Sauce and Parsley Salad

This dish is bursting with flavor, thanks to the creamy vodka sauce and fresh parsley.

The salmon is also cooked to perfection, providing a delicious taste and texture.

Best of all, this recipe is relatively easy to make, even if you’re short on time.

Simply cook the salmon in the oven and then top with the vodka sauce and parsley salad.

If you’re having guests over, this recipe is sure to impress.
