Spicy Vodka Sauce For Pasta Recipe @pinch

A super easy vodka sauce that's full of flavor. It's thick, robust, and has a slight kick. There's a hint of cayenne, but the heat is not at all overwhelming. Once prep work is done, the pasta sauce comes together very quickly. We served this vodka sauce over pasta alongside chicken cutlets for a hearty meal. It could easily be served over rigatoni pasta with a bit of freshly grated Parmesan on top for a special meal. I typically make this vodka sauce when serving my Parmesan chicken, but it goes wonderfully with shrimp dishes or alone as a side. Use your favorite vodka and enjoy a 'dash' of the vodka while you're cooking. :P
