    William (Uncle Bill) Anatooskin's Note:

    A very easy recipe to make and is very tasty. Found a recipe similar to this one several years ago and made my own modifications to achieve a nice flavor. This recipe doubles very well, but be careful when igniting the Vodka. I suggest that the Vodka and cayenne pepper be burned in separte batches, then combine together before continuing with the recipe.

      Very easy to make, and would definately make again. The vodka sauce is cooked and ready by the time the pasta is cooked.
