This restaurant quality pasta dish is absolutely delicious. The luscious, creamy, tomatoey vodka sauce is rich, slightly spicy, with just a zing of vodka. Penne Alla Vodka became quite popular in the late 80‘s and is still popular today… Normally it includes real cream for richness but I'm using reduced-fat milk. Great news though, it still retains the decadent flavor of a regular recipe but with a fraction of the fat and calories. In addition, I've placed it over fiber rich whole wheat penne instead of white pasta. The key to this sauce is using a premium vodka… It adds a clean, fresh taste. A less expensive brand will give a harsh taste. This skinny pasta dish has only 347 calories, and 7 grams of fat compared to Sbarro’s Penne Alla Vodka at 640 calories and 28 grams of fat. Hope you try it soon. It’s simply delicioso…
