    This meal is so delicious that you will be eating the sauce as it cooks, before even adding the pasta. It’s that good. This one is a nice welcome when taking a break from meat and going meatless for a night. But then again, I can see some kind of protein so, so good in this pasta.

    Why all the hype over Gigi Hadid pasta? What is this Gigi Hadid Pasta?

    Honestly, we didn’t know who Gigi Hadid was before we come face to face with this creamy vodka pasta. Apparently, she turns out to be a model who loves to cook.

    A few months back, she cooked this vodka pasta and posted a recipe on instagram and people all over the internet can’t stop talking how good this pasta turns out.

    Vodka sauce in itself is so delicious. It’s rich, creamy, tomatoee… Now imagine it gets a tad bit of spicy kick. It’s just too much to handle, you keep on eating till you lick off the last of that yummy sauce.

    You can make this with vodka like the original recipe for vodka sauce, or go sans vodka like Gigi (she didn’t use it in hers, but recommended using it if you have some).

    This pasta happens fast. In 30 minutes dinner is ready and will be loved by the whole family. We say it definitely lives up to the hype.

    • Shallots or Onion
    • Garlic

    • Red chili flakes
    • Parmesan cheese

    How to make Gigi Hadid Pasta

    Start by boiling the pasta in salted water (we use one teaspoon salt). Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the packet.

    While the pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in a pan and sauté chopped shallots or onions for 10 minutes, so they get nicely translucent and start getting brown. Add in garlic and sauté for a minute.

    Add in tomato paste and cook for 5 minutes. Time to stir in vodka and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add in cream along with chili flakes and give it a stir till it becomes a smooth sauce.

    Add in salt and pepper along with parmesan cheese and mix it well.
