I like the recipe because of it's savory taste, a change from my traditional Italian sauce, guests go crazy.

This was so good. It was such a hit I had to twice stop my teen boy from making more pasta on his own so he could eat more sauce. He cant get enough! Thank you.

  1. In a skillet saute butter and finely chopped garlic and scallions (use the whole scallion) until tender.
  2. Remove from heat.
  3. Ignite and let vodka cook down, (flame will go out).
  4. In a sauce pot add tomato sauce, half and half, pecarino romano, basil, and garlic powder.
  5. Then add vodka and chopped scallion and garlic butter mixture into the sauce.
  6. Cook over medium heat, stirring.
  7. Pour over cooked rigatoni.
  8. Garnish with fresh parsley.
  9. I recommend pouring the sauce over each individual dish it goes further.
