I decided to make Penne Vodka (with my own twist) and it is super easy!
Penne (I prefer whole wheat pasta)
Your favorite marinara or a good base for one.
1/3 cup vodka
Pancetta (Italian bacon)
couple pads of real butter
|Ingredients. The Hunt's sauce is good because it isn't chunky at all. Pancetta is kinda pricey but worth it.|
|Melt couple pads of butter until foamy. Add diced up pancetta|
|Cook in butter until starts to crisp.|
|Add 1/3 cup vodka, cook until alcohol burns off (couple-few minutes)|
|Add tomato sauce|
|Season to taste w/ S&P|
|Add 3-4 scoops of ricotta cheese|
|Stir until well blended|
|I add parmesan and some parsley. Let simmer a little to blend flavors.|
|Add cooked al dente pasta|
|Stir it up and serve asap!|
|I also made fresh garlic bread|
|dish up and eat!|
The garlic bread is just a baguette, EVOO, minced garlic, salt, italian seasoning and mozarella and parmesan. Broil it for 5 minutes or less and you have fresh toasty bread with an awesome garlic kick! It doesn't matter though as long as everyone eats it right?!
