      I made this in the morning and reheated for dinner.I used white wine instead of vodka, which works out fine. I pureed about 1/3 of the sauce, since my kids don't like chunkiness in their tomatoes. It did look nice and appetizing (restaurant quality), especially with the green broccoli.This was really delicious and you could really taste the red pepper flakes.I found it a nice change not having garlic in the sauce, but one could certainly add it. I recommend serving the sauce on the side, since it immediately gets absorbed and dillutes the spiciness. I will remember this one when entertaining. Roxygirl

      A bit bland for our tastes, but don't let that stop you from trying it. Very few like as much spice as we do. Didn't have penne, so used angel hair, my favorite type of pasta.
