  1. Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir fresh tomatoes, onion, and garlic in the hot oil until onion is tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir canned tomatoes and tomato paste into the tomato-onion mixture, breaking down the whole tomatoes with a fork. Mix basil, salt, and pepper into the tomato mixture; simmer until liquid has slightly reduced, 15 minutes.
  2. Stir vodka into the tomato mixture; simmer vodka sauce until slightly reduced, 15 minutes. Stir cream into vodka sauce and cook until heated through, 15 minutes.
  3. Bring a large pot with lightly salted water and 1/2 teaspoon olive oil to a boil. Cook pasta, stirring occasionally, at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 10 minutes; drain. Fold pasta into vodka sauce to coat.

This was so easy to make and it tasted GREAT! I can't wait to make it again; my family LOVED it. Th only problem was that I didn't make enough :)

Fantastic recipe. Easy to prepare. A BIG hit at my daughter's birthday dinner.

I followed this recipe (almost) to the letter. It's EXCELLENT as written! Don't be afraid of the amounts of onion & garlic, the flavors all work together so well, nothing overpowers anything els...

DELICIOUS! Best Sauce I've ever made and eaten. Tastes like my favorite Italian restaurant sauce. I didn't change a thing in this recipe. My kids are already asking for it again. thank you!!!

We very much enjoyed this recipe. It definitely makes enough for two meals for a family of 4! It could use some red pepper flakes to spice it up a little.

This recipe is great. I would highly recommend adding 1 tsp of red pepper flakes when adding the basil. It gives the recipe a perfect kick when combined with and neutralized by the cream.

Super super bland. I followed the recipe as noted, and even used very good quality canned plum tomatoes (san marzano), organic tomato paste & a spanish onion.

Delish! Followed the recipe exactly, and it was amazing! Cannot wait to make it again! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!!!

Wow! This is by far the best penne vodka recipe I have tried! the sauce is actually thick enough for my picky vodka sauce daughter! I pureed the onions and garlic with the tomato after sautei...
