Thanks Evelyn for this delicious pasta dish!
We prepared this for Valentine's Day using fusilli instead of penne.
This is a thousand star recipe for all pasta lover!
WOW and a big thanks from all of us 4!

I prepared the parmesan in this way:
Sprinkle cheese in the center of a skillet into a disk shape in pan.
Using a spatula shape to hearth.
Allow cheese to get slightly golden underneath, then carefully remove it using the spatula.

This was sooooo good! The only changes I made were adding garlic and a bit of fresh rosemary with the onion and butter. I can hardly wait to make this again!

There is not much to say about this simple tasy dish except that the only thing I did different was adding some fresh garlic, was generous with the Tabasco and that I will make this again!

Om nom nom! So tasty and tomatoey and velvety! Tabasco to taste was, for us, 1 teaspoon. I think the sauce would work well with spicy sausage bits too. Will definitely make again. Thank you Evelyn!

Wow!!! This was delicious!!! The only changes I made was that I used my homemade alfredo sauce instead of the heavy cream and I used canned spagetti sauce instead of the tomato puree...however, I followed the measurements perfectly...this was delicious!!! I will definitely make this again!

We really enjoyed with Italian bread dipped in Alfredo Sauce. Sooo good, and easy to make any night of the week! Thank you for sharing!

This was quick, easy and delicious. It was a last minute choice that was easily prepared from everyday pantry items. Instead of tomato puree I used a bottled tomato bruschetta mix that I happened to have on hand. If you have unexpected company on a Saturday night, this is the dish to prepare. Your guests will be soooo impressed.

Outstanding vodka sauce. Had to use up some ham and the result was this sauce with fusilli - did not have penne. I love Italian food and some of the simpler sauces are crowd pleasers for sure. Did not not have tomato puree and used tomato sauce instead with excellent results. Thank you Evelyn for posting this yummy recipe.
