I recreated this dish as a tribute to one of my favourite pasta dishes: Penne alla Vodka and it really hit the spot! It works such a treat with courgetti and is such a delicious summer dinner. Garlicky prawns in a creamy tomato sauce spiced with chilli and vodka is just such a treat, some of my favourite flavour combinations. There is something magical about seafood pasta isn't there? And this simple dish is ready in minutes (truly).
For those of you who aren't a fan of alcohol, most of the alcohol content is cooked off during the process, leaving you with a delicious and full-bodied sauce. In any case you can omit the vodka if you want and it will still be delicious! And you have two options with the courgetti. I like mine raw especially in the summer, warmer months, I find that the heat from the sauce cooks the courgetti enough for me. However, in the colder months or if you feel like it, you can pan fry your courgetti for 3-5 minutes until it softens a bit and then pour the sauce over it.
Hope you enjoy eating this dish as much as I do. I leave you with this uber simple and delicious and nutritious recipe to tantalise your guests at your next dinner party.
