Two of my greatest loves – vodka and pasta have been united in a viral recipe, thanks to Gigi Hadid.

Yep, Gigi’s a new mum to baby girl Khai, a supermodel and partner to Zayn Malik (One Direction, remember them?). Now she can add celebrity chef to her repertoire with her spicy vodka pasta recipe! #blessed

Continuously popping up on my socials are people recreating Gigi’s spicy vodka pasta and so because I can’t resist a) pasta b) vodka and c) a celeb who’s willing to share her recipes,  I thought we could all give it a crack too.

Of course, you can omit the vodka component and it will still be delicious!

Check out the visual feast below that is straight from Gigi’s Instagram:
