Vodka sauce

Big Chill does a lovely Penne in Vodka sauce. Albeit, it’s too creamy and tastes like a tomato sauce pasta. Vodka is supposed to enhance the flavor of Tomatoes in a way water & olive oil can’t. The sauce has a distinct peppery zing and I like putting just a touch of cream instead of making it the main ingredient. Try it with a Pasta of your choice or a nicely riddled juicy chicken breast.
