It feels safe to say, at this point we have established that Italian food is not only the best tasting, but the most fun to eat! Those savory and heavy pasta dishes, while mouthwatering and delicious, usually don't represent the healthier side of dining. However, chef Rocco DiSpirito from Z Living's show Now Eat This!, is back with another healthy Italian favorite—Penne alla Vodka. We promise it will taste great and save you on all those unwanted calories.
Rocco says it best: "The dirty little secret about Penne alla Vodka is not the vodka, but the hefty amount of heavy cream. Vodka is colorless, odorless, and without much flavor—not really attributes of a superstar ingredient. It's the combination of cream and tomato sauce that gives this dish its signature flavor. The traditional cream is swapped here for low-fat Greek yogurt."
