Fresh parmesan cheese and crushed red pepper finish this vodka penne with shrimp in a tomato sauce.


  1. Pasta, 1 pound, penne
  2. 1 pound of deveined and peeled shrimp
  3. A finely chopped yellow onion
  4. 3 minced garlic cloves
  5. Optional: 1 tbsp. red crushed pepper
  6. Canned 28 ounces of tomato puree
  7. 1 cup of booze
  8. Heavily creamed milk
  9. 1/4 cup brown sugar
  10. a pinch of each: salt and pepper
  11. olive oil to the extent necessary


  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet to medium-high heat and add the onion. Salt and pepper the shrimp before serving. On each side, cook for a minute and a half. Toss the shrimp into a serving dish and remove it from the pan.
  • Toss the onions into the pan and cook for a few more minutes until they’re soft. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring once or twice during that time.
  • Saute the garlic and red pepper flakes for 20 seconds, then remove from the heat.
  • To achieve the desired consistency, add the vodka sauce and heat for 4 minutes, or until the vodka has reduced by half.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the tomato puree, sugar, salt, and pepper. While the pasta is cooking, cover the pot and cook for 15 minutes.
  • As the package says, cook the pasta as it says to do.
  • Add the heavy cream to the tomato sauce and boil it for 2 minutes longer. Add more salt if necessary to ensure the dish is properly seasoned.
  • Using a fork, mix the sauce with the shrimp and pasta.
  • Take a bite and savour it right away!


Instead of tomato puree, use 28 ounces of crushed tomatoes if you prefer a chunkier sauce.
