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 hate anchovies on pizza. However, when adding anchovies to an Italian sauce, the anchovies break down and disappear into the oil. The flavor is pure umami and mimics the varieties of fish and oyster sauce used in Asia to add extraordinary flavor to cuisine.

      Texture, maybe? Not so noticeable in a sauce, but anchovies can feel "hairy".

  • Declan Christenberry

    usually i go with whole san marzano and a can of tomato paste in the sauce, and also add tuna and artichoke hearts, also no parsley and def gotta have a bay leaf in the sauce, i just a lot of passion towards this sauce, also i use buccatini, also i know you dont give a shit at all about any of this lol
