Heart-Healthy Monday: Vodka Penne

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

1 c. low-fat Alfredo sauce
1 c. marinara sauce
1/4 c. vodka
4 c. cooked pasta
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese (opt.)

Preparation:

In a large bowl, combine Alfredo sauce and marinara sauce; stir in vodka. Add to warm, cooked pasta. Stir to blend or serve as a sauce. Garnish with Parmesan cheese.

Note:

Not quite the cream sauce, this is a blend of bottled marinara, low-fat Alfredo (from the refrigerated pasta case at the grocery store) and a splash of vodka. Great additions include cooked shrimp or chicken pieces, grilled mushrooms and toasted pine nuts.
