      The only thing _simple_ about this dish is the prep - certainly not the sophisticated flavor! I made just as written except for sautéing some minced garlic with the onion. I was liberal with the hot pepper flakes - probably closer to 1 tsp by the time I was through. The finished sauce was _silky_ in texture and coated the pasta like a dream. The prosciutto added a smoky/salty backnote. I think a key step here is cooking off the alcohol before adding the tomatoes and cream. Others I've tasted were almost bitter from the vodka. This is truly gourmet in less than 30 minutes! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe. I'm sure to repeat this one! ;-)

      Wow~ Really WOW~ When I was making this I kept thinking- ok this is just NOT gonna be good. I was soooo wrong! This was devine! I cheated on the heavy cream- I used the trick of cottage cheese and powdered milk in a blender for 5 minutes so that I didnt have the FAT!- and I used turkey bacon for the prosciutto since I do not eat red meat or pork- Aside from those issues I made this as instructed and was so pleasantly pleased! BLOWN AWAY! This has a slight smoky flavor from the meat and a creaminess from the dairy that is just so sublime! I used 1/2 t red pepper flakes and wanted it spicier! I did use organic tomato puree too! This is a specatcular dish grafeetee! Thank you for such a wonderful recipe! This is going into my keeper cookbook! What a stupendous find- and one that can be made from mostly pantry ingredients and a few refrigerator staples! AND in UNDER 30 minutes! STANDING OVATION! Thanks grafeetee!
