I love this recipe for penne alla vodka. I used to work in a restaurant in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and we used to make this dish a lot. I have made it for all my friends and family and they all love it too and I thought I would share it with you all. Enjoy!

  • Stir tomatoes, salt, and pepper into bacon mixture; simmer for 15 minutes. Pour vodka over bacon mixture; simmer until sauce is slightly reduced, 15 minutes.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, 8 to 10 minutes; drain and transfer pasta to a serving bowl.

  • Stir cream into vodka sauce and simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes. Toss penne and vodka sauce together until coated; sprinkle with nutmeg.
