"This is a great recipe for those who love spicy food. If not, simply omit the crushed red pepper. This recipe will have your family eating the leftovers out of the refrigerator. A piece of advice: use the best vodka you can - it really makes a big difference! Serve with pasta, and garnish with grated Parmesan cheese." — RACQUELLE

My family loves this recipe. I added more garlic and I diced the prosciutto. I also used diced tomatos and added some sugar to cut the acidity. I add diced onions for addition favour. I simmered the dish after adding the tomato products for 2 hours before adding the cream and this blended the flavours better.
This was pretty bad. I didn't add the prosciutto, but I can't imagine that it would help. It seems like a tad bit much vodka in this recipe, most others only use 1/4 or 1/3 cup vodka.
One word . . .Yum! I made this but substituted the prosciutto with chicken. Absolutely delicious.
This is a really good sauce to play with, and add or take away what you like. I used Fire roasted diced tomato and garlic. (new from Hunts) reduced the vodka to 1/2 c. did NOT add water, and fresh grated parm. Also, I served it over 3 cheese tortellini. OMG! Delicious.
I tried this recipe without the prosciutto, because it's too salty for my taste. The sauce was delicious!! The alcohol evaporated well enough that we couldn't taste it, but it still enhanced the flavors of the other ingredients. I think next time I'll use less water to keep the sauce thicker.
I have tried this recipe and it came out fabulous. I can't understand how the other Person can mess up such a great sauce.
We are going to play with this a little more, but, as a basic, its terrific.
I changed it to 2 servings, and it made ......3. I used fresh Romano cheese, and my wife wished I'd have used dry parm.... I blended it in the pan to smooth it a little, used no water and 15 oz tomato sauce to 15 oz, diced tomatoes. Added a smidge of sugar.
I had this sauce recently in a las vegas hotel and it was so smooth...... and in denver, its very chunky. we likw the smooth texture a
LOVED this recipe! i didn't add the can of water, I like the sauce a little thicker. I did add some parmesan on the plate, and that was a great addition. I like it spicy, so 1/2 tsp pepper flakes was great, but if you're serving this for a crowd, maybe cut back the pepper flakes a little. Roma tomatoes do make a big difference. I didn't use fresh herbs, wonder how much better that would have been?? Terrific sauce, went awesome with penne. Mangia!
