At Italian restaurants, I have always had the problem of deciding between a red tomato based pasta dish or a rich creamy based pasta dish until I came across this pasta sauce which combines the best of both worlds – Pink Sauce! This by far is my favorite sauce to go on any Italian pasta dish.
If you don’t prefer the flavor of vodka or don’t have any laying around in your house, I’ve made this recipe several times with and without adding it, and the pasta tastes amazing either way. I also love adding roasted sliced red bell peppers or sauteed mushrooms to the dish to add some veggies.
For a gluten-free option, use any gluten-free penne pasta. One of my favorite gluten-free pasta brands is De Boles which you can get at most grocery stores.
UPDATE – I recently revamped this recipe and developed a vegan version using cashews!! I absolutely love the taste and flavor. I have updated this recipe below to include a vegan and non-vegan version. Enjoy![subscribe_box]
