"Penne or rigatoni served in a vodka cream sauce. So easy and when you make it, everyone is so impressed! The sauce can made a day in advance, which really brings out all the flavors." — Dawn

Hi this is Dawn, if your meal tasted too much like vodka, chances are you did not simmer it long enough. The vodka taste burns off! Enjoy
We didn't like this at all. There was an after-taste that was not appealing. I will not make this again.
WOW..Thats the 1st word that popped into my head once I made & tried this recipe. Put it this way, now at every famiy function it is my duty to make this. I scaled it to 25 people & had it for a christening & a 50th bday party. Very rich & so tasty. I added some parsley for a lil extra taste. But I make this at least once a month for my family. My niece eats it for breakfast! Enough said...
Very yummy and easy to boot. I like that it's quick and also made with ingredients I usually have on hand. I did add a bit of garlic and a bit of ground oregano to round the sauce out. I served this topped with strips of pan-friend prosciutto. Our guest, my two toddlers, my husband and I all cleaned our plates, it was a hit.
This was delicious!! Everyone loved it and I can't thank you enough for sharing such a great recipe!!
I just made this meal for my boyfriend and we loved it! I modified the recipe slightly.
I added garlic to the butter as it melted to give it more flavor and a can of crushed tomatoes with Italian seasoning for texture as the other tomato items were added.
I also chopped up about eight fresh basil leaves and added them to the sauce at the end with the parmesan cheese.
Next time, I plan on halving the amount of butter used in the recipe to cut back on fat.
Overall, this recipe was quick, simple, and really really tasty at the end of the day. It's definitely going into our hearty food rotation.
Very good. DH and I thought this was a nice change from the regular marinara sauce (even if it did look a little too much like tomato soup LOL). I added frozen Italian meatballs and chopped mushrooms to the sauce while it cooked. We really liked the flavor. Thanks
Great! But I had to leave out the crushed red pepper in my next batch for the pennevodkophiles.
