Bill, Bill, Bill, thanks so much for this recipe! I loved it!! I totally agree with your statement about cooking being a "creative sport". I can't say I didn't change anything in the recipe. I used whole wheat penne instead of the bow tie pasta because that is what I had on hand. Next time I'm going to add a little red pepper flake, because I like that little zing in my sauce. The butter in here gives it a smooth texture. I do have an FYI, though. A small can of tomato sauce measures out to 3/4 C of sauce. So, I used the whole can, increased the vodka by 1/8 of a cup and raised the pasta to 2 cups. I left everything else as is. I had enough for supper, and I can't wait for lunch tomorrow. Again, thanks.
This was pretty good and made for a quick dinner. I was surprised by how strong the vodka was so next time will probably cut it down a bit. I used a little extra basil and did add some Parmesan on top. Served with garlic bread. Thanks for the recipe!
I don't drink vodka but had an almost empty bottle from an office party that I was wanting to put to good use. This was perfect. I did use tomato pureee instead of sauce though...yum.
