Penne With Creamy Vodka Sauce

Penne With Creamy Vodka Sauce created by kzbhansen

Oh, YUM! I got this from Campbell's Fall Family Favorites magazine...I just HAD to try it -- what with 4 kids and all, I was hoping to "knock them out" with the Vodka! (JUST KIDDING!!!!! LOL!!!!!) No, but seriously, I saw Emeril make something similar to this, so I tried this simplified version, and it was GOOD! Even the kids liked it (although they would have frowned if I told them I put Vodka in it...Hee hee!) NOTE: I usually add 1/2 lb. pepperoni slices, cut into 1/4" strips to the sauce.

    This was really good!!! I made it using the pepperoni like Stacy has in her notes and it turned out great!!! It was a bit on the spicy side since I simmered the sauce for a while with the pepperoni in it but we LOVED this!!!! Stacy you will be missed!!!

    Made for ZWT 4. Wonderful sauce! I did not have bottled pasta sauce so used diced canned (drained) tomatoes instead. Also added sauted onions and garlic; and pureed 1/2 the sauce before adding the cream and vodka. Served over cheese ravioli instead of penne. Made a perfect dinner, thanks for sharing!

    This is delicious pasta and super easy. The only thing I did different was add more red pepper flakes and basil for our tastes. Made for Basil/Nutmeg Italy for ZWT 4
