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

  • Published on Jun 12, 2018
  • 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.

    I've found that the trick to using Anchovies - if you don't like their taste - is to use just a tiny bit compared to what most recipes recommend and then cook them for a while. This way they will enrich pretty much any sauce with their glorious umami flavor, without overpowering with their nasty fish taste.

    I know a cute little bit of information about Puttanesca sauce. There was a time in Venice (Marco Polo years) when there were so many prostitutes that they had to offer something special to attract customers. They settled into making Puttanesca sauce. The smells would waft out the windows. Men would walk up & down the boulevards noticing what smelled the best to them. It became known as the smell of a prostitute.

    what are your guys go-to alternative to all the plastic wrap he uses in his videos. I love Babish but I am always skipping the plastic wrap when I follow his stuff. Bowl and towel, air tight container... etc. Just curious what you guys like the most.
