This is one of my all time favorite pasta dishes.  When my husband used to travel for work, this was the dish that my son and I would always have for dinner.  It is total comfort food to me. It is from the wonderful book Trattoria by Patricia Wells’.   I remember reading a bunch of Amazon reviews before I bought this book and more than one reviewer said that this recipe alone was worth the price of the book.  I could not agree more.  This is by far and away the best Penne with vodka sauce I’ve had.  I deeply love Patricia Wells for this recipe!  Thank you, Patricia,  my Penne with Vodka Sauce angel !!!!
