  • This was good but didn't taste like pasta alla vodka, so I was disappointed because I went into making and eating it thinking that. Though it was a tasty sauce! - 6/18/09

    I am sorry that you were a little disappointed, it is a very light version unfortunatly when you trade out heavy cream for lowfat/skim milk it does lose a little of that. You can try whole milk if you want a creamier more vodka like taste. Thanks for making this and taking the time to respond. Bye.
