Binging with Babish: Pasta Puttanesca from Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events

3 049 368 Views768

    Pasta puttanesca can mean many things - a bonding moment for a family enduring unspeakable tragedy. A peace offering to a conniving, distant relative and his wannabe-drama-nerd-cronies. A "prostitute pasta", its literal translation from Italian to English. Whatever pasta puttanesca means to you, it's basically a bunch of anchovies and olives mashed into spaghetti, and it tastes better than it sounds.

    2. Lilac Lycanvic

      AAH WHERE WAS THIS WHEN I WAS WATCHING THE SERIES *fangirling noises* As you can tell, I love the Series of Unfortunate Events. I’ve read all the books, watched the movie, and seen the Netflix series.

    3. Brie Teas

      I've always wanted to make that dish, ever since I've read about it in the first book.

    4. ZOMBIEZAHNpakuto

      I thought I wasn't a picky person, but there's practically no main ingredient in pasta puttanesca I can stand eating. 😵😵😵

    5. Ed Hopkins

    18. _chunqkychops

      p - puttanesca?

    19. Katie Cochran

      “Be sanitary, don’t be gross,” says the guy who makes a Matilda cake with literally his blood, sweat, and tears.

    20. Dolphinboi

      There's an Italian term used for under sauced pasta, it's called yucky

    21. Alexandru Pulhac

      in italian pasta puttanesca means bichy pasta

    22. Lieutenant Dude

      Pasta puttanesca. Probably means prostitute pasta to imply that it’s for very poor and undesirable people. Olives

    23. Kati Wade

      He disrespected the Budilairs (I don't know how to spell that sry)

      Sorry, but i play pubg

    29. Captyn

      I was honestly excited most about this one, because I remember reading the first book in elementary school and wondering how the dish would be composed, looked, tasted. This really hits home for me, plus I love pasta and olives so, not a whole lot to hate,

    30. batt3ryac1d

      Seeing as Jon Faverau(dunno if I spelled that right) had Babby on his Netflix show how long till you think Babbys gonna be in the background of the next MCU movie.

    54. Bilbo Swaggins

      3:03 Why would you ever want to talk about anything other than food?

    55. Eddie Biezas

      Unsubbed because of Fortnite

    56. Will Floyd-Evans

    67. Maia Hochheiser

      *cue angry penguins fans*

    68. Mr Geese


    69. Wooderlyn

      When babish would talk about things non-food related it reminded me of when Brian in Family Guy would try to sound smart and “woke” but he really doesn’t know anything about what the fuck he is saying.

    70. John Smith

      for apiril fools he needs to do the family guy fast food pizza restaurant salad

    71. Soqquadro


    72. Kristie McDonald

      AND MY OTHER BEST FRIEND JON FAVREAU. God I love this channel.

    73. Stephen Sano

      I like that you used all the traditional ingredients! So many chefs leave out the anchovies!

    74. Ross DiamondThief

      Can’t believe everyone forgets the Jim Carrey film😔

      1. The One and Only Michael McCormick

        Ross DiamondThief He was Jim Carrey. As enjoyable as he could be, it didn’t work.

      2. Ross DiamondThief

        The One and Only Michael McCormick Jim Carrey was still good in it.

      3. The One and Only Michael McCormick

        Ross DiamondThief Because it’s not very good. Accept that.

    75. Samuel North

      Fucks sake, you chose the Netflix series INSTEAD OF THE MOVIE????

      1. Elizabeth Hunley

        The TV show stayed much truer to the books and the storyline (until the end)

      2. The One and Only Michael McCormick

        Food ASMR The movie isn’t very good. Neither’s the Netflix show, but that’s more recent.

      3. Samuel North

        Elizabeth Hunley the TV show is a stinking hunk of shit riddled with cheese humor

      4. Elizabeth Hunley

        The movie is a crime against humanity.

    76. AzuuL 64

      Did anyone here want the source vid to be Okuyasu eating Tonio’s version of this pasta from JJBA?

      1. The One and Only Michael McCormick

        AzuuL 64 If I close my eyes and imagine, that WAS the source video.

    92. Mashed Potato In a Box

      That means its Whore's pasta, meaning a whore made this pasta

    93. clown599

      yep as italian i can confirm your translation, are the Pasta delle puttane, cause it has a funny story: sailors, after long travels, when they returned at bay wanted just one thing: Whores and food. Prostitutes were not so much interested in hours and hours of sex from hungry sailors, and that pasta (very fat and good) was the perfect "antipasto" before the sex….. so the sailors were full of food and not too much interested in hours of sex, but just one "botta e via" that means classic 10-20 minutes and after that, sleep ;)

    94. Leaf Ramos

      Why do you hate this dish?

    95. francheska m

      “be sanitary, don’t be gross” says the man who put blood and sweat in a chocolate cake 😂
