Penne Vodka. What is it?

Penne alla Vodka Salmon Fort Lauderdale

Penne alla vodka or just Penne Vodka is a pasta dish made with vodka and penne pasta, usually made with heavy cream, crushed fresh tomatoes, cooked onions, and sometimes sausage, pancetta or peas or addijg salmon. The recipe became very popular in Italy and in the United States around the 1980s, when it was offered to discotheque customers.

Cafe Italia also prepares Penne alla Vodka in my favorite way – by flambe! When you flambe the sauce, it adds a nice smokey flavor to the sauce.

Found it online. Read the reviews and fell in love with the quaint little place. Everyone was friendly. I love it when the owners speak with their customers.

The chicken marsala was amazing! (Actually the whole dinner was from start to finish).
