I made the recipe for 6 and then froze half the sauce (didn't want to be tempted to eat more than the "allotment") I used the exact 6 ounces of pasta. We had more than enough for dinner with a nice salad. There were leftovers which my husband ate for lunch today. Nice recipe, but not a creamy as I thought it might be - and we could not taste even a hint of the vodka. We are very happy with Eating Well's recipes and are both learning about portions.
Penne with Vodka Sauce & Capicola
Our velvety tomato sauce is spiked with cubes of salty capicola and a few shots of vodka. Make it a Meal: Caesar salad and a glass of Pinot Noir will shine with this dish.
7 Reviews for Penne with Vodka Sauce & Capicola
I made this for dinner last night for my husband and myself because I had some pancetta I wanted to use up and a little bit of fat free half and half. I figured it served six so we could get two dinners out of it. Wrong! There was just enough left for lunch today. I only had to change the recipe a tiny bit. When I fried up the pancetta it didn't release enough fat to cook the onion and garlic so I had to add a glug of olive oil. It was wonderful.
