How to Make Penne ala Vodka

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cook the pasta according to package directions,el dente.
    Strain and reserve.
    Using the same pot as the pasta,turn the heat to high and add the vodka.
    Bring to a light boil and add the sauce stirring frequently,lower the heat to a simmer.
  • 2whisk in the heavy cream,3/4 of the grated cheese and stir frequently until the sauce come to a light boil. Chop the basil coarsely and add about half of it for the sauce and the other is for garnish along with the remainder of the cheese.
  • 3The sauce should be pinkish in color and the alcohol in the vodka will evaporate leaving the flavor of the spirit.
    Serve in pasta bowls with a fork and a spoon so you can get all the goodness!
    I also like to have this with a good loaf of bread and a nice tossed salad,delicious!!
    A little red crushed pepper on it isn't to shabby either!! Enjoy!:)
