Penne pasta with prosciutto & vodka sauce

An Italian classic, originally found in the Sopranos cook book.

This is what you’ll need:

  • 1 lb penne pasta
  • 1/4 thinly sliced prosciutto ham, chopped
  • 28 oz diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbs chopped garlic
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Step 1:

Saute olive oil and garlic. Combine tomatoes, chopped prosciutto, vodka and crushed red pepper. Let simmer for 10 minutes on medium heat. I leave it uncovered. Start boiling water for pasta.
