      A delicious vodka sauce recipe with a kick of heat! Like another reviewer, I used only 1/4 cup of vodka and increased the broth to 1/2 cup, and I thought the flavors were great. Take note that the 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes is PLENTY, even for those who like spicy foods. For those with more sensitive stomachs, I'd definitely cut this down to 1/8 tsp. Overall, both DH and I loved it, and I'll definitely be making it again!

      Wow, I made this for Valentine's dinner for my hubby and I tonight. He kept going on about it being better then at a restaurant. I didn't have fresh basil and used dried. It was fantastic and easy. Definitely going into my monthly meal rotation. It was so much better then the jarred stuff I have bought in the past. Thanks for an awesome recipe. It was lower calorie as well!!! :) Toasted ciabatta bread with butter and garlic salt to go with it. Literally wiped the plate clean to get every last bit of sauce on the bread.
