Part of the excitement of going out to eat is ordering food that you can’t make yourself.
We like going out to eat; we just hate spending money on things that I can make at home -- like pasta! Until now, though, I'd never made a creamy pasta dish. That's why Penne ala Vodka is one of my favorite things to order when I'm at a restaurant.
Well, I no longer have that excuse! This dish hit all the yummy notes, with just the right balance of creaminess and acidity. It's an incredibly flavorful and satisfying dish, one that I liked better then an average restaurant Penne ala Vodka.
I made it a meal by serving this tomato penne with a big salad. It was like a special restaurant dish in the comfort of our own home. I will definitely be making this again!
