Looks YUMMY to me! And it was!

Tonight for dinner I decided to make Penne Pasta with Vodka sauce. It was yummy! But here are a few tips. When adding the Parmesan cheese make sure there are no lumps in it … I didn’t have fresh Parmesan I had the bottle of pre grated. Overall a VERY easy meal to make and will make your family very happy!


1 29oz  or 1lb can of tomato sauce

1 cup vodka

1/2 cup heavy cream, at room temperature

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

3 cups penne pasta

Vodka and Tomato Sauce

Parmesan cheese, Penne pasta and Heavy whipping cream


Simmer the tomato sauce and vodka in a heavy large skillet over low heat until the mixture reduces by 1/4, stirring often, about 15 minutes. Stir the cream into the tomato and vodka sauce. Simmer over low heat until the sauce is heated through. Stir in the Parmesan cheese until melted and well blended.

Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente, tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Drain the pasta and transfer it to the pan with the sauce, and toss to coat.
