Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place farfalle pasta in the pot, cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
  2. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage until evenly brown. Mix in the roasted red peppers, mushrooms, and vodka, and bring to a boil. Cook and stir 5 minutes, until most of the vodka has evaporated and mushrooms are tender.
  3. Mix the tomatoes, half-and-half, and red pepper into the skillet. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring frequently, 15 minutes. Serve over the cooked pasta, and top with Parmesan cheese.

Great recipe! My husband loved it! I made a few alterations to give it a little more of a kick. In the sauce, I added Oregano, Italian Seasoning, freshly pureed garlic, fresh ground pepper and diced onions.

Nothing too spectacular. It was fast to make but it just really doesn't scream "cook again"

We thought this pasta dish was yummy, although we ommited the sausage at the beginning, and threw in three quarter pound of shrip at the end. I didn't have a can of crushed tomatoes, and so I tried to food process a can of diced tomatoes. If anyone ever tries this, please, please drain the tomatoes first. Whirling tomatoes creates plenty juice. THis was a great basic recipe though. Thanks.

This was really good. To suit our family's tastes we added spices. Thank you.

This was okay. I think it would be much better if you stopped after step 2, added some olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper and tossed that with the pasta.

Very good recipe. Drained the tomatoes like the reviewers advised and added more red pepper and oregano. Delicious meal!! Used smoked italian sausage from the night before and we loved it!! Will definitely make again.

I strongly suggest draining the tomatoes even though it is not explicitly stated in the recipe. Ok. Needed something. I did not inlcude the sausage and found it to be runny.
