    Penne a La Vodka Casserole

    4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

    1 pound sweet Italian sausage, cut crosswise into 1-inch slices

    1 pound hot Italian sausage, cut crosswise into 1-inch slices

    4 cups thinly sliced onions

    1 3/4 teaspoons salt

    3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves

    1 tablespoon minced garlic

    1/2 cup vodka

    2 (16-ounce) cans crushed whole tomatoes, with their juice

    1 teaspoon Essence, recipe follows

    1/2 cup heavy cream

    1 tablespoon olive oil

    1 pound penne pasta

    15 ounces ricotta

    1 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

    11/2 cups grated mozzarella

    Crusty bread, for serving

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

    Heat 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil in a large skillet or saucepan over high heat. Add the sausages and cook, stirring, until browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the onions, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and the black pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are just soft, about 4 minutes. Add the basil and garlic, and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the vodka and tomatoes; reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 40 minutes. Add the Essence and heavy cream, stir to mix, and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.

    To cook the pasta, combine 4 quarts water, the 1 tablespoon olive oil, and the remaining 1 teaspoon salt in a large pot over high heat. Bring to a boil, add the pasta, and cook until al dente, 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain well. Combine half of the ricotta cheese and half of the Parmigiano-Reggiano with the remaining 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil in a large mixing bowl. Add the pasta and toss to coat evenly. Add the sausage mixture and mix well. Add the remaining ricotta cheese and the remaining Parmigiano-Reggiano and mix well.

    Transfer the mixture to a 9 by 13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with the mozzarella. Bake until bubbly and golden, about 45 minutes. Remove from the oven. Serve warm with crusty bread.

    2 1/2 tablespoons paprika

    2 tablespoons salt

    2 tablespoons garlic powder

    1 tablespoon black pepper

    1 tablespoon onion powder

    1 tablespoon cayenne pepper

    1 tablespoon dried oregano

    1 tablespoon dried thyme

    Combine all ingredients thoroughly.

    Yield: 2/3 cup

    my fave penne/vodka recipe:

    Open a bottle of red wine and let it breath

    get out: 1 box of Penne and 1 can of BERTOLLI vodka sauce

    have a glass of wine while waiting for water to boil

    cook according to package.

    have a glass of wine while stirring pasta - it's a boring job.


    have another glass of wine for a job well done
