Add in desired amount of spiciness with red pepper flakes. 

Rigatoni Vodka Butter

Add in a knob of butter, and let it render down slowly into this sauce, which is becoming increasingly flavorful and creamy.

Our tip: once you are able to draw a line in the sauce and it's able to stay, the sauce has been thickened enough!

Add back in the espresso cup of starchy water to help coat your pasta noodles with your spicy vodka sauce.
