Great recipe. Better than restaurant quality. I substituted chopped basil for the parsley. I also rendered off a couple slices of finely diced bacon before the onions and garlic which added alot of great flavor. I added a pound of medium shrimp at the end. I only used one can of Italian plum tomatoes with the juice.
Great recipe. I cut the recipe in half and only used one can of crushed tomatoes. I don't eat red meat and I know most vodka sauces are made with prosciutto to enhance the flavor so I cooked about 4 strips of turkey bacon and added it in with the crushed tomato. I served this with some whole wheat penne and it was delicious.
This is definately a keeper!! I cut the recipe in half and otherwise followed the instructions...just the right amount of kick (we love spice) and one I will make again. Oh yes, I did add some fresh basil to the dish. Thank you for posting. Made for Think Pink 2012 tag game. Next time I think I will add some italian sausage since DH wanted some meat but it was great the way it is.
