Another great recipe - Penne a la Vodka

Another favorite in our home. It's really easy to make and is delicious. I served this last night to a group of teens with salad and bread and it was well received. :)

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
1/4 cup vodka
1 can (28 oz.) crushed tomatoes
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 tsp. salt
1 lb. penne

1) Heat oil in a medium-size saucepan over low heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes, making sure garlic doesn't burn. Add prosciutto, green onions, 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 ad dente. Drain well, Toss penne with vodka sauce to coat evenly.
