Are you making this? 
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Fifth Vodka
4 ts Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
2 tb olive oil
3 md Tomatoes; peel; seed, chop

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



1 tablespoon Italian Parsley -- chopped 12 ounces Penne; cook al dente -- drain 4 tablespoons Butter 3 tablespoons Heavy Cream 3 tablespoons Asiago or Parmesan Note: this dish must be begun 10 days before you cook it! Add the red pepper to the vodka, cap it, shake well, and refrigerate for 10 days. Remove vodka from refrigerator 3 hours before using. When you are ready to prepare the dish, proceed below. In saucepan, over medium heat, heat the oil and stir in the tomatoes, salt, and parsley. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes, or until the tomatoes are soft and satiny and most of the liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat. Taste for seasoning. Place the hot pasta in a deep saucepan. Set over medium heat for 1 minute, allowing any moisture to evaporate, stirring carefully so the pasta doesnt break up. Shake the vodka bottle well, measure out 4 ounces, and pour over the pasta. Stir well. Strike a match and, standing back a bit, ignite the vodka-doused pasta. When it flames, stir well again. When the flame subsides, stir in the butter,in small pieces, and the cream, blending well. Add the tomato sauce, sprinkle on the cheese, and toss. (A fifth of vodka is of course more than you will need; but you will end up using it again after you taste this...)
