Vodka Sauce

Rated as 4.57 out of 5 Stars

"This is a great recipe for those who love spicy food. If not, simply omit the crushed red pepper. This recipe will have your family eating the leftovers out of the refrigerator. A piece of advice: use the best vodka you can - it really makes a big difference! Serve with pasta, and garnish with grated Parmesan cheese."

This was pretty bad. I didn't add the prosciutto, but I can't imagine that it would help. It seems like a tad bit much vodka in this recipe, most others only use 1/4 or 1/3 cup vodka.

Delicious! I used pancetta instead of prosciutto because I already had it. I also left out the water and used 2 28 oz. cans of crushed San Marzano tomatoes and let it reduce a bit. The biggest c...

We are going to play with this a little more, but, as a basic, its terrific. I changed it to 2 servings, and it made ......3. I used fresh Romano cheese, and my wife wished I'd have used dry pa...
