    King's cook's Note:

    This recipe was given to me by the mother of one of my students. She made it quite often the summer I worked with her son in their home. The smell was out of this world when she was cooking it and she always sent me home with a serving. Now, many years later, I make it for my own family. Everyone loves it. It's nice any time of year as long as you can find good plum tomatoes. I make it a lot in the summer with my own homegrown tomatoes. It's really one of my favorite things that I make. I (like many people) don't really measure when I cook so measurements for things like cream and basil are not exact in this recipe.

      I've never had vodka sauce, little alone make it. My husband and I both really enjoyed this recipe! Rather than using fresh tomatoes, I used two cands of diced italian seasoned tomatoes. Instead of regular vodka, my husband brought home smirnoff citrus vodka, I thought the recipe was ruined at that point. We were both pleasantly surprised when we found out it wasn't and that this recipe was terrific. Thanks for the great recipe! Made for Spring PAC 2012.
