Ingredients

  • 1

    (16 ounce) package whole-wheat blend penne pasta (i.e. Barilla Plus®)

  • 2

    tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 3/4

    cup chopped sweet onion

  • 1

    tablespoon minced or chopped garlic

  • 28

    ounce can Italian-style diced tomatoes (or similar)

  • 1

    teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)

  • 3/4

    cup chopped fresh basil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1/4

    cup vodka

  • 1

    cup fat free half and half

  • 1

    cup low fat milk

  • 1/2

    cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

Start a large pot of lightly salted water boiling. Add the pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain the noodles in a colander. Meanwhile, start heating the olive oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until tender (about 2-3 minutes). Stir in the canned tomatoes (breaking up the tomatoes with a fork if using canned whole tomatoes). Stir in the crushed red pepper (if desired), basil, salt and pepper, bring to a gentle boil, then reduce heat to simmer and let cook for 8-10 minutes more. Stir in the vodka and simmer 10 minutes more. Stir the fat-free half-and-half and milk into the tomato mixture and let the mixture simmer another 8-10 minutes. Toss the sauce with the hot penne pasta and sprinkle each serving with Parmesan cheese.
