Penne with Prosciutto & Vodka Sauce

Well I finally made it for us at the house and it was a huge hit!

The ingredients are very easily accessable especially if you have a roommate like myself who tends to buy liquor and never finished the bottle!

Love you Cait!


1 Box Penne; cooked

15 Oz can Pasta Sauce OR 28 Oz can Chopped Tomatoes

1 Cup Heavy Cream

1 Cup Vodka

1 Cup Red Peppers; diced

1 Cup Greed Peppers; diced

1 Cup Green Onions (Scallions); sliced

3 Cloves Garlic; minced

1 Tbsp Crushed Bay Leaves

1 Tbsp Dried Parsley

1 Tsp Red Pepper Flakes

1/2 Cup Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese

1 Tbsp Olive Oil

First things first and get your hair out of the way while drowning in a GIANT glass of wine 🙂


Now to really get started… Take your prosciutto and cube it!

Its like magic….

Then heat the olive oil over medium low heat and saute garlic for 1 minute or until fragrant.

Next add your red and green peppers as well as green onion and cook another two minutes…

Stir in tomato sauce OR chopped tomatoes…

Add prosciutto…

Parsley, bay leaves, and red pepper flakes…

Stir in VODKA

Then simmer on medium heat for 10 minutes…

Reduce heat to low and stir in cream…

Continue to simmer over low heat for about 5 minutes or until thickened up a bit…

Toss vodka sauce with cooked penne

Toss again with the parmesan cheese and serve!

Au revoir!
