Number of Servings: 5


    1/4 lb. diced pancetta (Italian bacon), do not substitute
    1/4 c. butter
    1/3 c. vodka
    1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
    1 lb. penne pasta
    1 1/2 c. heavy cream
    1 1/2 c. tomato sauce


Melt the butter in a large frying pan. When the butter foams, add the diced pancetta. When the pancetta browns slightly (takes 2 to 3 minutes), add the vodka and stir.

After the alcohol burns off, stir in the tomato sauce and cream (the alcohol only takes a minute or two to burn off).

Stir continuously for 5 - 8 minutes. Place drained pasta into frying pan, add Parmesan cheese, and mix thoroughly for about 2 minutes.
