Pronto Ristorante (Toronto) used to have a great one. Look for it under that name or chef Arpi Magyar.

I like Fracesca Giarraffa's recipe best
16oz can of whole tomatoes, 1/2c heavy cream, 1/2 vodka (Valentines if you can find it), 4 cloves of garlic, 5 tbsp. olive oil, 1c parmigiano reggiano grated, 1 bunch of fresh basil chopped roughly, 1/2 tsp. chili peppers, 3 tbsp. soft butter, salt/pepper
Break the tomatoes up and set aside. Sauté the garlic in the oil until nice and golden, add the tomatoes some salt and the chilies. Cover and cook for 30 minutes on low. Add the vodka and cook for a few minutes, then add the basil, cheese, cream and butter, cook for a few more minutes on low.

I use a recipe from Martha Stewart that always turns out really well.

Summer of Eggplant, what a nice blog and Lecia's story is inspiring. Thanks for passing that link along.

First I've seen of Lecia's blog, but I love the Delancy's, the owners and her book. All lovely. Lecia's blog looks lovely as well.

Click the magnifying glass top right (don't use the "Hotline" search box)

Thanks, Pegeen! I did see one particular recipe that had excellent reviews. I just figured that others might have suggestions (as you did) for other recipes.

I've made this recipe and it's a bit of work, but good:

If you type "penne vodka" in the search box on this site (without the quotation marks), and choose "Recipes" from the pull-down menu, there are a bunch of recipes.
