    Used a jar of vodka sauce today for chicken thigh and collezione tortellini pasta. The chicken browned then poured the sauce over it. After about hour added some chopped green pepper and it seamed to almost over power the sauce. This must be a very delicate sauce thats flavor can be over powered easily. Finished by cooking the pasta in the sauce for extra flavor

    Vodka should have little to no flavor. So its sauce is not potent either

    What @phatch  said.

    Raw green (assuming Bell here) pepper will over power just about any dish if used without a thought for the outcome. (even if it has been sautéed) .

    Wonder if this thread will become as controversial as most of your other off the wall ingredient/recipe threads @Dagger  ?

    Just sayin' ;-)

    Try making a Pink sauce by adding cream or half and half. Top the dish with fresh basil, etc. Try it over penne, or (lobster) ravioli with same, topped w prosciutto and fresh Parm.

    I would use smoked salmon instead of the prosciutto. Heated prosciutto has a tendency to be chewy if not sliced thin enough.
