At my last job three years ago I used to eat penne vodka for takeout during overtime hours all the time. I haven’t made much italian food before, but figured I’d give it a whirl.

I burned my hand a bit when I was making vodka sauce for the first time this past weekend. The heat was too high so when I stopped stirring the sauce some bubbles blew up and sauce went in a few places I had to clean up. The sauce turned out pretty tasty so I was very pleased. Now that I have one under my belt I’ll feel a bit more confident when I try again maybe with a different recipe just to see.

Something I didn’t know before is that vodka sauce is orange because of the heavy cream in it, lots of cream. Yeah, not good to eat all the time but every now and then it’s dern tasty.
