I’m so excited to share another recipe using a Due Cellucci sauce! I finally tried their Vodka Sauce and I think it’s my favorite so far.

They’re a family-owned company and their sauces taste so fresh and homemade. They’re also made with all whole foods, no added sugar, is gluten-free, and Italian San Marzano tomatoes – yum!

All their other sauces are vegan and whole-30 friendly. This one is not since it has a little dairy, bacon, and a touch of white wine, but if you tolerate dairy, I highly recommend it!

Using their sauce, this chicken penne alla vodka recipe only has 3 other ingredients. It makes for a perfect quick weeknight meal.

I hope you try it out, as well as their other sauces. You can find them on Amazon!
