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
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.
