Instructions:
  1. In a large pot over medium-low heat, add olive oil, and once hot, add shallots and garlic. Cook for about 5-10 minutes stirring frequently until the shallots and garlic are browned. Remove the shallots and garlic from the pot, reserving as much of the oil as possible.

  2. Add sun-dried tomato paste and crushed red pepper flakes to the pot and raise the heat to medium-high. Cook for 1-2 minutes.

  3. Add the vodka and cook for another 1 minute.

  4. Slowly add the non-dairy milk to the tomato mixture until well combined.

  5. Add in vegan parmesan and use a whisk if needed to break up any clumps in the sauce.

  6. Once the sauce is smooth, add in cooked pasta, a splash of reserved pasta water, spinach, and basil. Toss to combine until the spinach is wilted down.

  7. Serve with additional vegan parmesan and basil garnished on top. Bottoms up!
