Skillet Penne alla Vodka
Penne alla vodka quickly became a featured item at trendy restaurants when it won first place in a 1970s recipe contest promoting vodka. We set out to fine-tune this modern classic.
Why This Recipe Works
For a penne alla vodka recipe that fit the bill as a handy one-skillet supper, we made sweet, tangy, spicy tomato sauce, added water and vodka to the pan to provide enough cooking liquid for the pasta, and waited until the pasta was done to add heavy cream, basil, and Parmesan.
