Vodka Sauce Recipe

From Claudia's kitchen @What's Cookin' Italian Style Cuisine
 
1/4 pound (1 stick) butter
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup vodka
1 can Italian crushed tomatoes
2/3 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup Romano cheese
1 cup heavy cream
Pasta, prepared according to package directions
Melt butter over high heat until bubbly; add red pepper flakes. Rapidly add vodka and simmer for 2 minutes. Simmer tomatoes with the 2 cheeses for 2 minutes, then add cream; simmer for 1 minute. Prepare pasta Rigatoni, mix completely with the sauce, and serve immediately. A great addition would be to add  sauteed chicken or  cooked mushrooms to the sauce.
