Binging with Babish: Pasta Aglio e Olio from "Chef"

  • Added:  Year ago
  • What dish can make any man or woman ache for the touch of Jon Favreau? Pasta Aglio e Olio is the dreamy midnight snack that lives up to its porny portrayal in the foodie-comedy-drama "Chef". Recipe below!



    1/2 head garlic, separated and peeled

    1 bunch parsley, rinsed

    1/2 cup good quality olive oil

    1 tsp red pepper flakes

    1/2 lb dry linguine

    1/2 lemon


    Heavily salt a large pot of water, and bring to a boil. Cook pasta to al dente while completing the steps below.

    Slice the garlic cloves thinly, and set aside. Pick the parsley leaves from their stems, and finely chop. Add olive oil to a large sauté pan, and heat over medium flame until shimmering. Add sliced garlic, stirring constantly, until garlic is barely toasted. Add the red pepper flake and remove from heat.

    Add the pasta, drained, with about 1/4 cup reserved pasta cooking water. Add lemon juice and parsley, and toss to combine. Season for salt and pepper, and serve.

    An easier way peel garlic is to crush it with the side of a large knife, it breaks the skin and just about falls off.

    You gotta use a metal pot for the garlic trick, and shake it for a good minute.

    I tried this and it tastes somewhat bland, is it suppose to taste this way or is there something which im missing? I followed his steps exactly. Could I add pecorino cheese if i want to give it more flavour?

    Easy way to peel garlic: cut the end off then smash it a little with the flat of your knife. The clove will practically fall out of the peel.

    Better way to peel garlic: Just squash them down with the tupperware box instead. The garlic will let go of the husk immediately.

    Pasta Aglio e Olio is the kind of pasta we eat in Italy after a night out, before going to bed. Changing country, I've always been curious about the food in '"Spirited Away" by Miyazaki, It's so detailed and inviting, even if we're talking about anime. Is there a chance?

    You didn't actually peel the garlic like that right? Just smash it with the side of your knife, it makes it a hundred times easier ✨

    I'm secure enough in myself to say this: That little sound Scarlet Johansson makes at the end of the clip physically hurts me. Because I know that I will never be able to do anything that well to make a girl make that noise.

    Yo Babish, that shaking garlic trick works but you have to use a very hard bowl like a glass or steel one and shake the shit out of it. It works! Keep up the kick ass cooking!

  • Travis Stone

    Try putting a garlic clove in between your palms and rubbing them together quickly like you are trying to get your hands warm. Works great for pealing garlic.
