You can now add “chef” to Kendall Jenner’s long list of talents.

The multihyphenate 28-year-old is best known as a model and reality star, but her tequila brand’s newest partnership is proving that she’s also a flavor connoisseur.

Together, 818 Tequila and Rao’s Homemade Marinara have teamed up to put a twist on the beloved dish, pasta alla vodka.

Introducing: Pasta Alla Tequila.

"I love swapping in 818 for other spirits when making cocktails, and we are always showing people how versatile tequila is, so we thought, ‘Why not try it in pasta,’" said Jenner. “We are excited to partner with Rao’s Homemade—a staple in my pantry, and the perfect match for 818 with their high-quality ingredients. The recipe turned out delicious and you can really recognize the citrus and agave notes of the 818 Blanco in the final dish. I can’t wait for people to try this recipe for themselves."

One way you can try the recipe is by snatching up a limited-edition Pasta All Tequila Kit, which is available from 818 Tequila starting on Feb 13 and while supplies last. It includes all the dish essentials: 818 Tequila Blanco, Rao’s Homemade Marinara Sauce, 818-shaped pasta, a custom dish towel and a homemade recipe card.

Tequila may not be the first complement that comes to mind for a creamy pasta dish, but the blue weber agave-based spirit actually makes for the ultimate enriching ingredient.

“Our 818 Tequila Blanco has bright and citrusy notes from agave and plays well with the slow-simmered Italian tomatoes that Rao’s Homemade uses in their Marinara Sauce,” explained David Yan Gonzalez, director of tequila operations at 818 Tequila. “It’s an unexpected combination that ends up being beautifully tasty, and we thought this partnership was the perfect opportunity to continue to demonstrate tequila’s versatility.”

He added, “With tequila’s popularity on the rise, consumers are always looking for innovative ways to use tequila in cocktails and food pairings.”
