Penne as Promised

Penne a la Vodka, in fast. Not a health food, but it’s so good. And, you know, sometimes you need easy comfort food. Of course, many of the people collecting pasta recipe’s at Once Upon a Feast agree. Thank you, Ruth, for hosting Presto Pasta Nights.
I’d try to do more describing, but I think that this picture speaks for itself:


(Served with garlic bread and yesterday’s arugula-pear salad)

To achieve your own plate of yummy pasta comfort, take a cup of cream in a small pot and cook it down until it halves in volume. While you’re doing that, cook 4 pieces of bacon in a large skillet with tall edges or medium sized pot, and put a pot of water up to boil for pasta (add enough pasta for 4 members of your household to the pot when it boils). Add 1 cup of tomato sauce, cream, and 2oz of vodka to the bacon and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Combine sauce with pasta. Eat. Smile.


(Mmmm. Sauce)

Also, bonus points (yeah, I’m not sure what those are good for either) to anyone who can guess what this was made into:
