Fill a medium-sized pan with water and cook the pasta al dente.
Peel and finely chop the shallot and garlic cloves.
Heat a dash of olive oil in a deep skillet and sauté the shallot and garlic for a few minutes. Then fry the tomato paste together with the chili flakes for a few minutes to deacidify the tomato paste.
Lower the heat and stir in the vodka. Let it simmer for a few minutes and then stir in the heavy cream and about 50 grams of finely grated cheese.
Once the penne is al dente, add it along with a bit of the cooking water. Stir to a nice consistency and season with salt.
Serve the penne alla vodka with more grated cheese, fresh basil and a fresh salad, enjoy!
