A twist on traditional penne alla vodka, the Brio version swaps out the penne noodles for delicate pasta pouches filled with creamy Ricotta cheese. The pouches are complemented with thin slices of garlic, crispy pancetta and sliced basil and bathed in a tomato Parmesan cream sauce making for a delicious way to cheat on your diet. Indulge in the pasta alla vodka while soaking up the fair weather months on Brio’s patio, nestled in the heart of Town Square before the summer sun has you running for air-conditioning. $16, in Town Square, 914-9145, BrioItalian.com.
