 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/4  c             Extra-virgin olive oil
    4                    garlic cloves -- minced
      1/2  t             Crushed red pepper -- or to taste
                         Sea salt
   28      oz            crushed tomatoes in puree
    1      lb            penne
    2      tb            Vodka
    1      c             Heavy cream
      1/4  c             Fresh flat-leaf parsley -- chopped
 
 In an unheated skillet large enough to hold the pasta later on,
 combine oil, garlic, crushed red peppers and a pinch of salt,
 stirring to coat with oil. Cook  over moderate heat just until the
 garlic turns golden but not brown, 2 to 3 minutes. If using whole
 canned tomatoes, place a food mill over the skillet and pure'e
 tomatoes directly into it. Crushed tomatoes can be added directly.
 Stir to blend, and simmer, uncovered, until sauce begins to thicken,
 about 15 minutes. Taste for seasoning.
 
 Meanwhile, in a large pot, bring 6 quarts of water to a rolling
 boil. Add 3 tablespoons salt and the penne, stirring to prevent
 sticking. Cook until tender but firm to the bite. Drain thoroughly.
 
 Add the drained pasta to the skillet with the tomato sauce. Toss.
 Add the vodka, toss again, then add the cream and toss. Cover, reduce
 the heat to low for 1 to 2 minutes to allow the pasta to absorb the
 sauce. Add the parsley and toss again. Transfer to warmed shallow
 soup bowls and serve immediately. (Traditionally, cheese is not
 served with this dish.)
