      This vodka sauce is delicious! I made it for the holidays for my family....including my 5 picky children! They do not like lumps in their sauce, so I used tomato puree as a substitute and light cream instead of heavy. I also love Barilla pasta and since we are trying to eat healthier for the new year, I've been using Barilla Plus multigrain penne.......sooo good!!

      In my opinion, this is a 10 star vodka sauce recipe. The best I've tried by a LONG shot!! I used about 3 tablespoons of EVOO and doubled the garlic. I added a few shakes of crushed red peppers and increased the tomatoes a bit. I doubled the prosciutto (for my meat loving husband) and used 1/2 and 1/2 in place of the heavy cream. UNBELIEVABLE!!! This goes into my top 10 italian pasta recipes of all time. Deosn't seem like it should, given the ingredients...but if you follow the directions and cooking time, the melding of flavors is insane. This is definitely company worthy as well. Served this over rotini pasta alongside a romaine salad. There wasn't a drop left. Will make this weekly for sure. Thank you for posting.

      Bethany, this is a very tasty sauce! I followed your directions to the letter and was rewarded with a very yummy dinner. I tossed it with mini penne and for the first time in a long time, I didn't even add any cheese. The next day, the leftovers were just as good.
