Easy to make baked penne pasta with a tomato-alfredo vodka sauce. For fresher taste, use 2 diced Roma tomatoes instead of the canned tomatoes. As for the vodka, don't use anything too dramatic. My favorites are plain Absolut, absolut peppar, absolut citron, and the lemon smirnoff. If the vodka is flavored, only use 1 1/2 shots instead of two.
Sometimes I add shrimp to add some protein to the dish, and this is how to do so:
About an hour before starting the dish, coat your shrimp with olive oil. Grind black pepper over the top and drizzle lemon juice over the top. Put the shrimp in a bag and add a small amount more of all those ingredients plus a dash of balsamic vinegar and a good season of basil.
Marinate for at least 30 mins, then broil for 4 minutes, turn over, another 4 minutes. Keep warm in a toaster oven until pasta is baked and add shrimp to the finished dish.
