A simple, flavorful vodka sauce with garlic, onion, tomatoes, and spices, finished with cream.
Cook the garlic and onion in olive oil over medium-high heat until translucent (about 3 minutes). Add tomatoes, bay leaf, and salt and pepper. Simmer the sauce for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
After 1 hour, add the basil, crushed red pepper flakes, and vodka. Then simmer over low heat, stirring frequently until reduced by about 1/4 (this will take approximately 25 minutes). Meanwhile, cook the penne according to box directions.
Stir cream and Parmesan cheese into the sauce and simmer for 5-10 more minutes. Finally, stir the cooked penne into the sauce. Sprinkle with fresh basil and serve.
