vodka cream sauce
butter + oil
onion + garlic (shallots?)
tomatoes (whole, crushed, or puree, 1-2 cans)
vodka (1/2-1 cup)
salt, pepper, red pepper?
1tsp sugar?
cream (1/2-1 cup)
cheese (2 tbsp-1 cup)

sweat alliums in butter/oil, crush tomatoes into it and let the flavors combine a while, add vodka and let it boil off (5-10 min), possibly blend, add cream and cheese on low heat, spices, thin out with pasta water if necessary

first attempt: 2 tbsp oil (the backup bottle, I was out of the good kind), 2 tbsp margarine, don't have any onion, 3 cloves garlic, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1/3 cup vodka (ran out), 2/3 cup milk plus a dollop of sour cream (didn't have cream), parmigiano (is this just Italian for parmesan? investigate). blended a bit with the immersion blender, leaving some chunks. minced the garlic bc my press is still in the car from beach werewolves and I didn't wanna go get it. edible but not the goal, gonna need to try again

second attempt: 1/4 cup oil + ~1tsp margarine, 1/3 onion, 1 shallot, 3 cloves garlic, 1 large can crushed tomatoes, 1 cup vodka, 1 cup cream, parmigiano (which just means parmesan that isn't crappy). too much allium I think, try without the shallot and let the tomato cook a while before adding the vodka. also a bit thick, maybe experiment with adding some stock or using half-and-half instead of cream

The Dark Side of the Italian Tomato
«L’Italia è il secondo trasformatore e conservatore mondiale di pomodoro dopo la California, in termini di quantità di prodotti freschi trasformati», si rallegra Giovanni de Angelis, direttore dell’ANICAV, associazione nazionale dei produttori industriali di conserve alimentari vegetali.
Gli “invisibili” delle campagne di raccolta sono migliaia in tutto il sud Italia. Quasi tutti privi di documenti, sono disposti a tutto pur di lavorare. «Neanche in Africa ho mai visto gente vivere e lavorare in tali condizioni», si indigna Yvan Sagnet, studente camerunese che ha organizzato nel 2010 il primo sciopero di lavoratori stagionali nei campi delle Puglie. Oggi lavora per la CGIL, principale sindacato italiano, per difendere i diritti dei lavoratori stagionali immigrati.

Stockpiles of tomatoes? UK retailers bristle at demands of no-deal Brexit - Reuters
“If your competitor is doing better than you then the consumer will walk,” said Andrew Opie, a director at the BRC lobby group. “One of the key items that all consumers look for is tomatoes. If you can’t see it you think the whole store is somehow depleted.” // THE TOMATO CRITERION!

Nigel Slater's baked aubergine pasta recipe | Food | The Guardian
easy and nice. aubergines took a bit longer than specified in our oven and shrink a lot. It's a _lot_ of olive oil.
