    Trying to find new pasta dishes besides the usual spaghetti and meatballs. I think this was originally posted in Eating Well Magazine.

      Very much enjoyed, thank you! I didn't look closely enough and used spaghetti rather than penne, my mistake, but equally delicious! I also had to use bacon, fried and crumbled, again, it was very good. We really enjoyed this rich sauce with a bit of a kick! :) I used my own oven-roasted tomatoes, and this was a really good dinner, thank you! Made for PRMR tag game.

      I really enjoyed this...the warmth of the vodka and the zip of the chilli flakes....mmmm...
      and the salt of the pancetta was great alongside the sweetness of the tomato sauce ( I whizzed my tinned tomatoes to make the sauce really smooth!).
      A simple, but elegant meal...thanks!
