Whether or not this dish of tube-shaped penne pasta lavished with a peppery, vodka-laced cream and tomato sauce was created in Italy is a matter of heated debate in some quarters; some say it was the result of aggressive marketing on the part of vodka importers. Whatever the case, it has become firmly entrenched as an Italian American classic.
The addition of truffle and truffle-infused oil heightens an already indulgent dish. To make this dish more wallet friendly, use jarred black truffles packed in water for the sauce and splurge on fresh for garnish.
