This is such a simple and delicious dish. This was the first time we had whole wheat pasta, and really didn't care for it as much as our regular Barilla penne. I'm looking forward to making this again, but will not use the whole wheat penne. The flavors were awesome, they really blended so nicely together. Thanks Chia

What a wonderfully easy pasta dish. I made this as a side dish for our dinner tonight and served with leftover Christmas ham. Unfortunately I couldnt get any whole wheat penne so used the plain kind. The vodka and paprika give it a great flavour, and the colour is lovely. Thank you for sharing.
