  Categories: Pastas, Sauces
       Yield: 4 servings
  
       1 lb Penne or other
            Tubular pasta
       5 tb Unsalted butter
     2/3 c  Vodka, preferable
            Polish or Russian
     1/4 ts Hot red pepper flakes
            Or more to taste
      16 oz Italian plum tomatoes,
            Drained, seeded
            And pureed-(can use
            3/4 c Ponni crushed
            Drained tomatoes)
     1/2 ts Salt
     3/4 c  Parmesan cheese, grated
  
   Preparation : In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the penne
   until al dente (tender but firm) for 8 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, melt
   the butter in a large noncorrodible skillet over moderate heat.  Add
   the vodka and hot pepper and simmer for 2 minutes.  Add the pureed
   tomatoes and cream and simmer 5 minutes longer.  Season with salt.
   When the pasta is al dente, drain well and pour into the skillet with
   the hot sauce. Reduce the heat to low, ad the cheese and mix
   thoroughly. Voila! Serve with a salad and good bread (it’s pretty
   rich and very potent). Serve 4 to 6. Walt MM
