A well made Vodka Sauce is a tasty alternative to your traditional pasta with red sauce dish. Making homemade Vodka Sauce can be time consuming and challenging to get the proper balance and blend of ingredients. At Stello Foods, we have perfected our own Vodka Sauce recipe that has been passed down through the Stello family for over 3 generations. Now you can create your own Vodka Sauce recipes and have a gourmet and homemade taste straight from the jar. For a busy family, this is a fast way to create meals that taste like they took all day to prepare. Here is a simple recipe idea to get you started:

Vodka Penne with Grilled Chicken and Fresh Tomatoes


1 Jar, Stello Vodka Sauce

1 Package, Stello Penne Pasta

Stello Grillin’ Spice Seasoning

Trimmed Chicken Breast

Cherry Tomatoes

Fresh Parmesan

Dried Basil

Step 1 : Boil the pasta. Be sure to follow cooking times on the package. Stello Pasta is a special cut of pasta that takes longer to cook, but provides a distinctive flavor and texture compared to other box pasta.

Step 2: While pasta is cooking, season chicken breast with Grillin’ Spice seasoning. This unique blend of spices will actually make the chicken taste like it was cooked over a charcoal grill. Once chicken is seasoned, grill on both sides until fully cooked and slightly charred.

Step 3: Drain pasta into bowl and combine with halved cherry tomatoes and Vodka Sauce. Mix thoroughly and divide equal portions on to plates. Top with fresh parmesan and basil.

Step 4: Slice chicken into thin strips and place on top of pasta.

Enjoy! Pairs well with White Wine.

This very simple recipe is easy to make and will certainly be a family favorite. Chicken can also be substituted with Shrimp or Italian Sausage. For a creamier dish, try adding an extra half jar of Stello’s Vodka Sauce to the recipe.
