Review This Recipe
WOW NEW FAV AT THIS HOUSE!

Fettuccine with Creamy Tomato Vodka Sauce
Wonderful, I even added seafood to the sauce. It was delicious.............
New Favorite Pasta Sauce!
I made this last night and eveyone loved it. I used Fat Free evaporated Milk insted of the heavy cream and I used tequila insted of the vodka and it was still great. I also added chicken insted off ham and topped it with spinach. I am definatly making this again!
Very easy to make and very yummy. Will definitely make it again. I didn't have any ham so I substituted it with chicken.
By Far the Best
This is by far the best sauce I have ever made, you can make slight ajustments to it like using chicken instead of ham or different types of pasta and it always comes out great. I cook all the time anything from easy dishes to very complicated, and this is easy and great. It is even great for small dinner parties, or a quiet romantic dinner w/ someone special and a bottle of wine.
This recipe is so easy to make and it's so delicious. I have made it twice already and we just love it. The more you make it, the better it gets.
I made this for a small dinner party - at first i was skeptical because i didnt get a chance to test it out before making it for the party. EVERYONE was blown away at how great this was!! I think it has a perfect balance of herbs, pasta, and ham!! Everyone would not stop talking about it!! I will definitely be making this one again!!!
What more can you say??!! This was very tasty, and a keeper. Thanks.
This was a nice change of pace from what I usually make. The four star rating is just because it's a bit too rich for me.
Can I call you MOM?
I made this last night and got reviews from the neighborhood kids. They asked if they could call me MOM! My own kids thought it was great - and they will only eat cheese based sauces! Nothing with tomatoes in it! They loved it! I didn't have any vodka - so I put in chicken stock instead - Great!
I fixed this and I added Sausage(Jimmy Dean/W/sage) and it was one of the best pasta sauces ever and I've shared it with friends.
Just made it, it was GREAT! Will try again!
Its a very easy, fast, and delicious pasta. I used fresh tomatos and less cream... It was great.
great pasta dish
I made this for dinner last night and it came out excellent! I used half and half because that is what I had on hand and the consistancy was perfect. I will definately make it again. Everyone loved it!
I had this for dinner lastnight. It was so easy that I couldn't believe how good it really was. I was hesitant to eat anything with vodka in it, but we couldn't even tell it was in there. I know I will make it again.
Too bad the review has only 5 stars, I give it 10! I did some adjusting, doubling the garlic, orageno and basil and adding some bacon. The cooking took me 10 minutes and I served it with some garlic bread on the side. My husband thought I slaved all day.... but he doesn't need to know...
Fettuccini with Creamy Tomato Vodka Sauce
This dish was fantastic! I used half and half instead of cream. Didn't hurt it at all. I might try chicken next time. But otherwise a dish that would make guests sit up and take notice.
Excellent recipe.....I tweeked it leaving out the ham and using chunks of lobster....a hot hardy crispy garlic/herb bread with a chilled salad and a wonderful bottle of vino verde...hard to beat!!!
This easy, delicious and can be adapted for vegetarians ( as I did) by simply omitting the ham...no real difference in the taste.
A great company dish!!
Fast to prepare, and easily adjusted to feed a big crowd in style.
I serve this dish buffet style, with a Ceasar salad and crusty Italian rolls.
Mangia, mangia tutti
What else can you say, but that, it's the only way to eat.
It's A Keeper!
This recipe caught my eye and I had to give it a go. I did a fair bit of substitution, but tried to hold true to the original. I used light cream (10%) and a tablespoon or so of sour cream. Diced hot Italian sausage and chicken breast were added instead of ham and I also used one reviewer's suggestion of fresh tomatoes instead of tinned. It's delicious any way you want to prepare it and when my husband goes back for seconds, I know it's a keeper!
I loved this recipe. It's going to be one of my favorites forever! My husband and I loved it. I added some grilled chicken and mushrooms and it enhanced the flavor that much more!!
Some last minute dinner plans were cancelled and instead I had to make a romantic dinner for my boyfriend and I. The old addage that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach is certainly true - he LOVED this dish, and it was so easy to make. Enjoy!
This pasta was very good, I used fresh tomatoes instead of canned tomatoes and it was delicious. Very chunky my husband loved it, but it was VERY filling, I think I made too much. Anyway over all really good!
This was wonderful - I added a little more of the spices than what it called for, some cubed chicken breast, precciutto (instead of regular ham, more vodka, and cayenne pepper. It was absolutely fabulous, but I don't think it makes enough sauce for the amount of pasta it calls for, so double up on the sauce ingredients.
Excellent meal, easy to prepare. One of the nicest pasta dishes I have tried in a while
