Step 1: Heat the oil in a large frying pan and add your shallots. Allow them to gently fry over a low heat for around 8 minutes until soft and translucent.
Step 2: Whilst the shallots soften, put your pasta into a pan of boiling water and cook to pack instructions
Step 3: Add the garlic, salt and chilli flakes to your shallots and gently fry for 30 seconds, then stir through the tomato purée and butter until incorporated and add the vodka, simmer for 3 mins.
Step 4: Quickly stir through the skyr and remove from the heat whilst you drain the pasta, keeping a mug of cooking liquid to the side.
Step 5: Over a low heat, add your pasta, along with the cheese and a ladle of the cooking liquid to your sauce. Toss together adding a little more cooking liquid to loosen if necessary.
Step 6: Season to taste, then serve with a sprinkling of the extra cheese, black pepper and use the basil leaves to garnish.
