As written, kind of blah and not worth the trouble. But it goes quickly to five stars if you . . . skip the butter all together. Instead, saute some onions and garlic in olive oil. Add the tomatoes, but don't drain them. That liquid will be great in your sauce! To thicken your sauce, skip the heavy cream and use 8 ounces of neufchatel cheese (which is just low fat cream cheese). Add basil and oregano to taste with a little fresh ground pepper. I cut back the vodka to 1 cup and it was plenty and I only used 1 teaspoon pepper flakes and it was plenty spicy for us. I know this is a huge change to the recipe, but I'm sorry to say it was just so bland as written. Oh, and I also often add some sauteed mushrooms to this sauce - super yummy!!! And I use bowtie pasta. It's just a fun way to serve pasta!
