Personal Notes:
Some classic vodka sauces simmer away for hours to build flavor. Discovering a faster approach, we exchange fresh tomatoes for a combination of assertive sun-dried tomatoes and convenient crushed ones, yielding a full-flavored homemade sauce in roughly the time it takes to cook the pasta.
