      Made this Vodka Sauce to put over Lobster Ravoilli. Turned out great my husband loved it. The only thing I did different was I used a shalotte and 1/2 of a sweet onion, and Italian sweet cream, (what I had on hand) I also used an Immersion blender at the end to make it nice and smooth. I'm Itlalian and make sauce all the time and this one was so fast and easy that I know I will be making it often. Thanks for sharing your Grandma's recipe.

      I love Vodka sauce and have tried a couple of recipes and they were not the way I like it. Tried this one and it was fabulous....I used fat free half and half and next time will put in a pinch of red pepper...otherwise we loved it.
