Delicious! I made this vegetarian without the prosciutto and it was terrific. Before I set up all the incredients in the saucepan, however, I sauteed a whole red onion in about 1 T salted butter. Then I deglazed the pan with the vodka and added all the other ingredients. A few other changes: I replaced the fresh parsley with fresh basil and replaced the garlic powder with an equal amount of fresh minced garlic. I also added about 2 1/2 cups diced baby portobello mushrooms. I followed some other reviewers' suggestion and only added 1/2 c grated Romano cheese because I didn't want the flavor to overpower the rest of the sauce. Next time I think I will just add a pinch of black pepper (even at 1/8 t it was too much) and maybe double the amount of red pepper flakes. This fed two very hungry souls, with seconds for each of them, and then there was still about half left to freeze. Thanks for a great recipe! Everyone requests this when they're coming over for dinner!
All-in-all I was pretty unimpressed with how this recipe turned out. It was incredibly sweet...something I was NOT expecting. I don't know...I just thought it had a weird flavor. It wasn't completely unedible (in fact, my roomate liked it alot)...it's just not "my thing". Probably not a helpful review, but my review none-the-less!!
I am a BRAND NEW COOK who just discovered this site and this was the very first recipe I decided to try (I have always enjoyed Penne a la Vodka in restaurants).
I am GLAD I DID because it was so EASY and came out so YUMMY!!! I had it with some friends and neighbors and it got great reviews by all!
I LOVE THIS SAUCE!!! It froze well and then it tasted EVEN BETTER THE NEXT TIME I REHEATED IT!
Thanks you so much, Angela, for sharing this easy and sumptious recipe. It was the perfect recipe for this beginning cook and I look forward to enjoying many more new recipes.
TRY THIS ONE! It is RICH and HEAVENLY! ENJOY!
I have been looking for a great alla vodka recipe. I have finally found it. I made a few changes. I left out the proscuitto and the peas and used 3 - 4 fresh cloves of garlic instead of the powder. If I don't have fresh parsley. I use dried. Good Luck. Life is short so eat drink and be merry!!
I have made this recipe for years, love it every time! I dice the roasted pepper, just a personal preference. The prosciutto definitely makes the dish. Tried to sub 1/2 and 1/2 for cream last time, didn't come out as good - stick with the cream - it's worth it!!
Tasty sauce. I forgot to add the Parmasean cheese which made the sauce a bit thin but still delicious.
This was a wonderful dish! I added fresh garlic and left out the roasted peppers and it was just marvelous. My boyfriend almost ate a pound of rigatoni!!!
This is an awesome recipe! I did not use the peppers, and made a few other changes. Instead, I just used red cayenne pepper, fresh garlic, chopped onions, turkey sausage, and pureed tomatoes. It was absolutely delicious - a big hit in my family. Try it!
