This has potential with a little tweaking - I used half the amount of pasta. I sauteed the minced garlic along with some diced onion (about 1/4 c.) in a couple Tbsp. of olive oil then added 1/4 tsp. of crushed red pepper flakes along with 1/2 cup of vodka. I let that simmer for a few minutes. After adding the crushed tomatoes I added 1 Tbsp. of basil, 1/4 tsp. of oregano, 1 tsp. of parsley, 1/2 tsp. of salt and 2 tsp. of sugar. After that simmered for about 15 minutes I then added 1 cup of light cream along with 1/2 cup of grated parmesan to make it extra creamy. Great with a side of garlic bread!

Not bad, but it could use another item, (e.g. Onion).

This turned out ok. It needed something. When the sauce was done, I thought it looked more like a rich tomato soup (perhaps not a bad idea, maybe next time I will just serve the sauce in a bowl with some bread!) I had some Absolute Peppar that I wanted to use, but was advised against it. Would be interested if anyone tries that and how it turns out. If you do, I would suggest not putting in the crushed red pepper with it.

I have this same recipe, except there is a 1/4 cup of parsley added at the end. I also add grilled chicken breast seasoned with seasoning salt. I get alot of compliments on this recipe. I also grate fresh Romano cheese on each serving

Good, but I agree missing something...mushrooms? I know it's not typical for mushrooms in Vodka sauce, but I think it would have added a pleasant texture.

Not bad - needs something else - maybe onions/peppercorns. I added some jumbo shrimp to it.

I agree with others that this recipe was definitely missig something! My husband said it was good, not great. I am going to think about it and try it again with something else added for more flavor.
