  1. Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir fresh tomatoes, onion, and garlic in the hot oil until onion is tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir canned tomatoes and tomato paste into the tomato-onion mixture, breaking down the whole tomatoes with a fork. Mix basil, salt, and pepper into the tomato mixture; simmer until liquid has slightly reduced, 15 minutes.
  2. Stir vodka into the tomato mixture; simmer vodka sauce until slightly reduced, 15 minutes. Stir cream into vodka sauce and cook until heated through, 15 minutes.
  3. Bring a large pot with lightly salted water and 1/2 teaspoon olive oil to a boil. Cook pasta, stirring occasionally, at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 10 minutes; drain. Fold pasta into vodka sauce to coat.

Super super bland. I followed the recipe as noted, and even used very good quality canned plum tomatoes (san marzano), organic tomato paste & a spanish onion.

I followed this recipe (almost) to the letter. It's EXCELLENT as written! Don't be afraid of the amounts of onion & garlic, the flavors all work together so well, nothing overpowers anything els...

Fantastic recipe. Easy to prepare. A BIG hit at my daughter's birthday dinner.

DELICIOUS! Best Sauce I've ever made and eaten. Tastes like my favorite Italian restaurant sauce. I didn't change a thing in this recipe. My kids are already asking for it again. thank you!!!

We very much enjoyed this recipe. It definitely makes enough for two meals for a family of 4! It could use some red pepper flakes to spice it up a little.

This recipe is great. I would highly recommend adding 1 tsp of red pepper flakes when adding the basil. It gives the recipe a perfect kick when combined with and neutralized by the cream.

Wow! This is by far the best penne vodka recipe I have tried! the sauce is actually thick enough for my picky vodka sauce daughter! I pureed the onions and garlic with the tomato after sautei...

Delicious. A nice change from meat sauce. As other reviewers did, I added some red pepper flakes.

So easy to follow and it turned out delicious! Can't wait to try this again for my guests!
