Penne a’la vodka


1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes
2 cloves garlic, chopped
4 slices proscuitto 1/4″ thick
1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup vodka
1/2 tsp hot pepper flakes

Dash salt
1 box penne or rigatoni

How to prepare

Cut proscuitto or bacon into small pieces. Melt butter and saut proscuitto and garlic until lightly browned. Add tomatoes, pepper flakes and salt and cook for 1 hour stirring occasionally. Keep partially covered so that the sauce can reduce.
When sauce has reduced to about half, add heavy cream and vodka, bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Simmer for 1/2 hour and serve over penne, rigatoni, or other”shaped” pasta.
Note: if sauce becomes too thick, add either more cream or some water.
