Vodka Sauce Pasta

I received this recipe from Pamela at Our Love Nest when I asked for some new recipes on Twitter.  We are in a food rut and needed some new ideas.  I made this last night and its an instant hit!  It'll now be part of our regular dinner rotation.  Enjoy!

2 tbsp of butter
4 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 qt of heavy cream
2 cups of marinara sauce
Parmesan cheese
Shot of Vodka (I was assured that this recipe could be made without it.)

Brown the garlic in butter in a sauce pan.  Before the garlic gets too brown, add heavy cream and shot of Vodka.  Stir well, then add 6 tbsp of parmesan cheese and stir.  Then add marinara and a few pinches of parsley, and bring to simmer.  (Pamela's note:  If the sauce is too thin, add more parmesan cheese.  If the sauce is too thick, add more milk.)

Prepare 2 pounds of penne pasta.  Drain pasta and pour into baking dish.  Pour sauce over pasta and mix together.  Top the dish with more parmesan cheese and parsley.  Bake at 300-degrees for 15 minutes.  Serve.
