Homemade Vodka Sauce & Gluten-Free Cheese Raviolini

⁠A little tangy, a little tomato-y, and a little creamy, vodka sauce makes the perfect pairing for ravioli! While this recipe calls for vodka, it evaporates throughout the cooking process, making this sauce safe for your kiddos to eat. Vodka simply adds a bit of heat and sharper taste to the sauce that balances out the sweetness of the tomatoes and heavy cream. ⁠
