      This was excellent. I did add just a few garlic cloves and used the skim milk. I also added a few Tbls of parmesan cheese. It tasted just as flavorful as the vodka penne I've had at some very nice italien restaurants. Very easy to put together. Will make this a staple.

      My family thought this was delicious. It was very easy to make, and I thought about maybe adding some garlic, but didn't, and in the end I didn't miss it. I made it just as is and thought it was really yummy.

      Very good!! Will make this again. Only thing I did different was to add some garlic. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!! FYI - One of those little bottles of Vodka you get at the liquor store measures 1/4 c exactly. The last one I bought was about $1.00.
