PenneAllaVodka_BeetSalad_IMG_0772What was I just saying about Penne alla Vodka? Yup. Here it is again.

I have a feeling I’m pushing the envelope with this one. One day this dish will be greeted with either: “Hey Nina, would you mind if I made the pasta tonight?” or the less subtle “Mom, why we always have the same pasta every single time!!!???”

But until then, I will continue to serve Penne (or Fusili) alla Vodka, at least weekly. My usual recipe makes enough sauce for two dinners. Considering that the sauce only takes a few minutes to make, this is a win-win in my book.

Also. Roasted golden beets with fresh cilantro is heavenly.
