Deadline Dishes — Penne a la Vodka

Penne a la vodka also sounds so fancy when I see it on a menu. And I’m sure if you’re Italian and actually know how to make the real thing, it probably is a bit fancy. But I have a cheap, easy and super quick version that my family loves! It might not be fancy, but it’s definitely delicious!

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 jar Marinara sauce
  • 1 jar Alfredo sauce
  • 1 box Pasta of your choice (I prefer penne or farfalle)
  • Optional: Cooked chicken breast, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese
  • Instructions:
  • 1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  • 2. While pasta is cooking, combine both jars of sauce into one pot and heat, stirring often.
  • 3. Toss cooked pasta with sauce, add cheese (to taste) and chopped cooked chicken breast if desired.
  • 4. Serve as is or put into an oven safe dish, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and bake at 325F just until cheese is melted.

The finished dish, served with caesar salad.
