My Italian heart is so happy tonight! Penne alla Vodka might sound intimidating, but it is so simple! Creamy tomato sauce with a little bit of booze to intensify the tomato flavor. Don’t worry–it doesn’t taste like vodka at all, and the alcohol burns off. I promise you won’t get buzzed eating this. 😂⁣

If you’re not a vodka drinker, buy a couple of those mini vodka bottle from a liquor store. In the recipe, I also provide an alternative in case you don’t want to use alcohol at all. But it really does make a difference in flavor. ⁣

Add whatever protein you want. I’ve made it with both shrimp and chicken. There is plenty of sauce to cover it all! Seve with a side salad, perhaps with my Light Casaer dressing? YUM. ⁣

A serving is HUGE: 1 2/3 cups. You could have less to lower the points, but I’m all about those big servings when I can make it work. 330 calories. 3 SP on Purple. 9 SP on Blue and Green. ⁣

  1. I was literally just thinking about finding a WW friendly penne alla vodka recipe today. You read my mind!

  2. This recipe is 🔥. I make it AT LEAST every other week and then we have leftovers. I throw some sautéed shrimp on top for some low point protein and I’ll often wilt some spinach in my portion to bulk it up and add veggies. Perfection!!!!

  3. I would love to have pasta and have a buzz after LOL! I am torn should I make this our the Cajun pasta tonight? Never had either and have ingredients for both!!

  4. Made this earlier in the week and it was a hit with the hubby & kids! Will definitely be making it again!

  5. Made this tonight and I am in love! So easy and so delicious! Def adding it to the dinner rotation. Thank you!!!

  6. Can you clarify the serving size? The post says 1 2/3 cup but the website says 1 1/3. Thanks!

  7. Delicious! Made this tonight was so good and I didn’t feel guilty. My homemade recipe is great but comes with higher calories and regret. Thank you for another good healthier recipe! Pared it with air fryer chicken cutlets @ sweetandsavorysteph. Yum!
