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.

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

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.
