    Crafty Lady 13's Note:

    I found this on another website, but haven't had a chance to try it yet. Hearty Italian sausage sauteed with garlic and red pepper flakes are simmered with tomatoes and cooked with vodka and cream to make a rich, spicy sauce. Toss with penne and fresh parsley to serve.

      Plate-licking good. I like my pasta saucy/goopy, so I used only 1/2-3/4 lb pasta. It was enough for 2 dinner servings and 2 lunch leftovers. I like spicy, so I cooked 1/2 lb of hot italian chicken sausage. When cooking garlic, I also sauted one small finely minced onion as well. Then added the red pepper flakes, with 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and 1/4 tsp oregano (probably could do 1/2 oregano). I used fat-free half and half and 4 tablespoons of vodka. I had no parsley, so used about 8 leaves of fresh chopped basil. Topped with a fistful of parmesan cheese, and mixed it all up. Penne is the best because all the meaty sauce gets stuck inside. This was the first time I've had penne alla vodka, and it was great! Thanks for the delicious dinner!

      My daughter's fave dish. I used morningstar ccrumblers instead of meat since I eat kosher. It is excellent!!!
