Penne Vodka with Sausage

Course: Main Course
Servings: 4


  • large pot
  • large skillet


  • 1 lb uncooked penne pasta
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp vodka
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 3.5 oz links sweet Italian sausage


  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. 
  • Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  • In large skillet, heat oil over moderate heat. 
  • Remove casing from sausage and add to skillet. 
  • Cook, breaking up the meat, until brown. 
  • Add garlic and red pepper and cook, stirring until garlic is golden brown.
  • Add tomatoes and salt; bring to boil. 
  • Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.
  • Add vodka and cream and bring to boil. 
  • Reduce heat to low and add pasta, toss for 1 minute. 
  • Stir in fresh parsley and serve!
  • Note:  I usually use extra sausage, and if I am making it for 2-3 people, I will usually use a little less pasta because I'd rather it be more saucy. 
  • Recipe can be doubled for larger quantity.
