1/2 c vodka
1 tbs red pepper flakes
2 tbs olive oil
1 med onion, chopped
4 slices chopped prosciutto
1 lg can crushed tomatoes
1 c Romano cheese
2 c heavy cream
1/2 stick butter

1 pound of penne - cooked

Soak vodka and pepper flakes for 10 minutes - the longer the pepper flakes soak, the hotter the sauce will be. Remove flakes; vodka will turn red.

Saute oilive oil, onion, prosciutto in pot for 8 minutes.

Add tomatoes.

Add vodka, cook on low for 1/2 hour, then add Romano cheese, heavy cream, and butter.

Cook another 20 minutes.

Pairs Well With


Penne Vodka Sauce -this makes enough sauce for 1 pound of penne. I sometimes add italian sausage to the sauce while it is cooking. You can also serve with grilled chicked strips over the pasta. It is all very yummy!
