This vodka sauce pasta bake is the ultimate in comfort food. Easy homemade vodka sauce is mixed with ziti, bacon, and cheese and topped with a crispy panko topping in this crowd-favorite main dish.
I’ve already told you about all the ways I’d like to consume this lightened up vodka sauce. Forget complementing food, I’ve been reduced to (or have graduated to?) sneaking spoonfuls straight after making it. And I mean straight – no pasta in sight.
Since I’m clearly looking for every opportunity to use this sauce, a pasta bake was a no-brainer. This vodka sauce pasta bake includes several of my favorite food items, such as pasta, bacon, and crispy panko, but first let’s start with the pasta.
