    This was great! I used 12 oz of whole wheat & flax seed pasta and half fresh tomatoes/half canned tomatoes. Also used a chicken sausage with garlic & spinach. Really tasty!

    This does sound good, Laurie. I've been avoiding pastas since summer (lost weight that way!) but I might dive in using whole wheat or rice pasta...

    Hey, what's with the low fat recipes? I'm thinking with the vodka if one gets buzzed enough it won't matter if they're a little chunky during that moment!
    Seriuosly though, do you do alot of reduced fat cooking for health reasons?

    I made this again last night! This time I used 1 lb. of 95% lean chopmeat and 14 fresh chopped basil leaves for 7 cups of sauce...This is very good! I posted a pic for you. Feel free to replace it with your own whenever you want!

    I made this last night and it was very good! My whole family loved this! I used 7 cups of marinara sauce, so I doubled the vodka, half n' half and the cheese. I know I'll be making this a lot!!! Great idea for a low fat recipe!

    These Vodka cream sauces are becoming popular because of great recipes like your Low fat Penne With Spicy Vodka Cream Sauce it has plenty of zip and heat from those pepper flakes.

    Five forks and a smile :)
