This authentic restaurant-styled penne a la vodka dish will truly amaze your friends and family, they will bow down to you.
Impress them easily while serving this up with warm crusty garlic bread and salad for a complete meal.
See below for additional variations on this dish including using chicken or shrimp and/or additional vegetables.
Equipment needed: Deep skillet to make sauce in and large enough to add cooked pasta in later (I use my "Le Creuset" Le Creuset 10-Inch Skillet deep frying pan since I can bring it right to the table"), and pot for pasta to boil in. Also needed is a whisk and pasta strainer.
Serve your Penne a la Vodka dish proudly, tell them someone else has to clean up and get ready to be bowed down to...relish in your royal achievements and have someone else fix you up another glass - hey you had a bad day right? Well you are off to having a fantastic night starting with this amazing dish! Enjoy! Use the remaining grated cheese to top off your plated dishes.

Alterations and Additions to Penne a la Vodka Ideas:
- Like shrimp? Add de-veined with tails removed shrimp to skillet after prosciutto has browned prior adding vodka. Same with cut up chicken breast.
- Want veggies in? Add frozen or fresh veggies to pasta water five minutes before pasta is finished.
- You can also use ham or bacon or a combination instead of the prosciutto.
