Penne with Spicy Vodka Cream Sauce

Quick share of one of my all-time favorite recipes! 

Penne with Spicy Vodka Cream Sauce

2 Tbls. extra virgin olive oil
3/4 lb salsiccia
1 tsp. minced garlic
crushed red pepper flakes (to taste...I go a little crazy)
28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
1/2 pint heavy whipping cream
2 Tbls. vodka
1 lb. penne pasta

Brown sausage in olive oil then add garlic and red pepper flakes.  Add crushed tomatoes and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.  Meanwhile, cook noodles.  (Back to the sauce.)  Add cream and vodka and bring to a boil.  Add cooked pasta and heat through for about a minute.  Enjoy!

This is one of my husband's absolute favorite makes great leftovers for lunches or more dinners so you can enjoy it again!  Pretty low fuss (especially if you have a splatter screen like mine!)
