"Delicious! I adjusted for 8 servings and substituted sausage for shrimp. My family (including the finicky kids) loved this dish. I prepped all of the ingredients beforehand and followed the recipe exactly. I used my cast iron skillet for the final baking. My husband (simple meat and potatoes guy) was VERY pleased - he ate this for 3 meals over the course of two days! Definite winner."- Mom_2_Four

Top-ranked recipe named "Romano's Macaroni Grille Vodka Rustica"
Preheat bbq grill to high.
Prepare gratinata sauce by melting 3 tbls of butter over medium/low heat. Add garlic and sweat it for about 5 minutes. Be sure the garlic doesn't brown. Add the marsala wine and cook for another 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients for the sauce and whisk until smooth. Bring mixture to a simmer and keep it there for 10 minutes or until it's thick. Cover sauce and remove from heat.
Cook past following directions on the package (7-9 minutes in boiling water). You want the pasta tender, but not mush (al dente). Strain pasta and set it aside when it's done.
Pound the thick end of your chicken breast a bit with a kitchen mallet to make them a uniform thickness. Rub chicken with olive oil, then sprinkle on a bit of salt and pepper. Spear the shrimp on skewers (6 per skewer should work fine), then rub them with oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.Grill chicken for 5 to 6 minutes per side. Grill shrimp for 2 minutes per side. When chicken is done, slice each breast into strips.
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Build each dish in a large shallow baking dish. Or you can use a 9 inch glass or ceramic pie plate. Load 3 cups of pasta into each baking dish. Add one quarter of the chicken, 3 shrimp, and 2 tbls of prosciutto onto each serving. Spoon 3/4 of a cup of gratinata sauce on each serving and toss to coat. Combine 3 tbls of grated Parmesan cheese with 1 1/2 tsp paprika, then sprinkle about 1 tbls of this mixture over the top of each serving. Bake the dishes for 10-12 minutes, or until tops begin to brown. Arrange 3 pimentos on the top of each serving, then jab a sprig of rosemary into the center an serve.

PenneRigateRecipes 1 year agovery good
Vmott23 2 years agoIt was good. Almost like a southwestern Alfredo. Not spicy but has full flavor.
Amy23 2 years agoGood and creamy but quite heavy. Made it exactly as recommended except sautéed chicken and shrimp, used half and half for the cream. Next time will increase pepper and maybe add mushrooms or broccoli.

Bsconverse 3 years agoI mixed it all together and put it in a 8x12 for 20mins at 350 with cheese on top and tinfoil---also added tomatoes, peppers, snap peas. My family ranted and raved( they also like more spice so I tripled the cayenne pepper)

donirvine 4 years agoInstead of using penne rigata and chicken, I used macaroni and boneless turkey breasts. Turned out equally good!
Badger95 5 years agoExcellent recipe. I added fresh sauteed mushrooms, didn't have vodka so I substituted white wine and added more shrimp. Big hit, will definitely make again. I served it with roasted asparagus (brush with olive oil, salt and pepper, 400 degree oven for 8-10 min.)
Baker82 5 years agoThis is not the recipe for the Vodka Rustica. The real version does not use shrimp and has a tomato based sauce. Is this perhaps the receipe to the Penne Rustica?
makeyourselfab 6 years agoThis recipe is amazing! My whole family loved it and could not wait for me to make it again. I'm not sure how long it took me, because I began to get ingredients ready and mixing them while my dad went to the store. And then I had to wait for him, but it didn't take too much time after that. I recommend getting all your ingredients measured out and ready first it cuts down on time later.
