I got this recipe from a little tear-out recipe book from Family Circle back in '99. We love this!
Penne a la Vodka
2 tbsp. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, chopped
6 oz. sliced prosciutto or Canadian bacon, chopped
3 green onions, trimmed, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp. ground red pepper (cayenne), optional
1/4 cup vodka
1 can (28 oz.) crushed tomatoes
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 tsp. salt
1 lb. penne pasta
1. Heat oil in medium-sized saucepan over low heat. Add garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes, making sure the garlic doesn't burn. Add prosciutto, green onion, ground red pepper and vodka; cook for 4 minutes over medium heat. Add tomatoes; cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Add cream and salt; cook 3 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, cook penne in a large pot of lightly salted boiling water until al dente, firm but tender. Drain well. Toss penne with vodka sauce to coat evenly.
