This is the best Vodka Sauce I personally have ever tasted! It's spicy, creamy, lil bit chunky, just perfect...I must say without tooting my own horn. I make the Vodka sauce first and let cool and reheat SLOWLY back up to temp just before I pull the Manicotti out of the oven to cool. *Dis is yummy really really yummy **MAKE BUTTER WITH YOUR LEFT OVER HEAVY CREAM*. I use the butter for Garlic bread! - in a plastic jar, violently shake Heavy Cream for 10-15 mins. - check every few mins and remove the buttermilk as it separates. I suggested a plastic container because I smack it against my legs! Make this part a real workout -- because you are getting ready to eat butter, and cheese, and pasta, and bread, and more cheese, and you are gonna love it! and I when I refer to my food as a puppy I do not mean a real puppy-- I am a vegetarian! *To make it easier to fill Manicotti I always split mine, fill and fold, like a lil baby taco*.
