* 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

* 1/2 cup 4 Copas Blanco

* 2 cups penne pasta, cooked according to package directions

In a sauté pan, melt butter and add onions. Saute until translucent. Add tequila and cook to burn off alcohol. Add chicken stock and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes. Add heavy cream and simmer for another 2 to 3 minutes. Fold in cooked pasta, cilantro, and parmesan cheese and mix well.

* 2 tablespoons minced cilantro

* 2 tablespoons minced garlic

* 2 tablespoons olive oil
