I love this recipe for penne alla vodka. I used to work in a restaurant in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and we used to make this dish a lot. I have made it for all my friends and family and they all love it too and I thought I would share it with you all. Enjoy!

Directions

  1. Fry bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain some of the drippings from the skillet. Cook and stir garlic with the bacon until garlic is tender, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Stir tomatoes, salt, and pepper into bacon mixture; simmer for 15 minutes. Pour vodka over bacon mixture; simmer until sauce is slightly reduced, 15 minutes.
  3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, 8 to 10 minutes; drain and transfer pasta to a serving bowl.
  4. Stir cream into vodka sauce and simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes. Toss penne and vodka sauce together until coated; sprinkle with nutmeg.

Great recipe except it was missing parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes. I didn't add the nutmeg to it. The sauce was a little skimpy. I think it needed a little more sauce. I fried the bacon whole and then removed from pan then drained some of the bacon drippings. Then I broke it up into small pieces and added it back to the sauce. It tasted great!

This recipe was very good, I normally do not cook with alcohol but the family really enjoyed this dinner. I made this recipe as written except made 3X the pasta. Although increasing the pasta there was plenty of sauce, although I will double the sauce next time. I served with garlic bread. Will make again. Do not let the vodka stop you it is so good. This recipe is good for the whole family.

This was exceptional! I especially liked the bacon and the secret ingredient ...freshly grated nutmeg. I used fresh pasta. Next time I will try it with some freshly chopped parsley or basil for color and a little extra zip. I also will add some chopped onion when frying the bacon. It's a great recipe as is yet very versatile. Thanks ...it tastes a lot like they make at Oregano's, a fantastic little Italian restaurant in Richmond Hill, Ontario.
