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.
