Ingredients
  • ½ pound penne pasta
  • 2 Tablespoons salt for penne
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil
  • 5 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • ½ tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 28 oz. can Crushed Tomatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons Vodka
  • ½ cup Light Cream
  • ¼ cup Parsley, Chopped
  • 6-8 Large Cooked Shrimp
  • 3 King Crab Legs, halved
Instructions
  1. Add the penne to a large pot of salted water and cook until the penne are al dente.
  2. While the penne is cooking, combine the oil, garlic and red pepper flakes in a medium (4-quart) sauce pan. Cook over moderate heat until the garlic turns golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes with their juices. Stir to blend and simmer, covered, until the sauce begins to thicken, about 15 minutes. Add the vodka to the pan.
  3. Separately, add about a tablespoon of the sauce to the light cream and stir the mixture slightly before adding the cream into the pan. Let sauce cook for about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add the shrimp to the sauce to warm them. Let sauce rest for about 5 minutes.
  5. Spoon the sauce and shrimp over cooked pasta and mix. Place crab legs on top with a drizzle of more sauce. Garnish with chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
