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

  • Added:  1 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.

    you need just 2 cloves.
    too much oil.
    need to pour some pasta water in the oil and mix, then put the pasta half way cooked in the pan and finish it there in order to let the starch come out and make a nice coating.

    Haha, I love that.. "Get your tools ready" #scotchScotchScotch. I love that you compiled this man, but out of curiosity: So I'm not a parsley fan, can we easily do this with that much Oregano as substitution?

    slice the little stemy part off the bottom of the garlic clove almost all the way through then pinch it, pull it around the top and most if not all of the garlic skins will come off with it.

    Lagavulin, 16 year-old Islay, per chance, neat?

    Your taste in single malt is as good as your cooking, dear sir ...

    Oh, and top-tip: Islay is prnounced EYE-lah, not IS-lay ... only a moron (or a moment of stupidity by an otherwise brilliant screenwriter...), would do that ...

    I tried this and it was glorious! Be very generous with the parsley and lemon since it cuts through the very "heavy" taste of garlic and olive oil perfectly!

    ‪@BingingWBabish just recently start watching you on YT. My favorite dish is spaghetti aglio olio e peperoncino. My question for you. How often should I swap out my crush red pepper in my pantry? Use it till it's gone, or buy fresh every couple months?

    I'm 15 and I made this tonight for my parents :) (they loved it!!) I have a natural knack for cooking, but of course with cooking and being an amateur there are mistakes to be made. I think I made it a little too garlicky, the head I bought had very large bulbs, so the next time I make it I'll probably buy a smaller head, or use less bulbs. I added I think a little too much oil (in my opinion), so the next time I make it I'm gonna pay closer attention to my portions, ect. This recipe is awesome! I'm so happy I came across this channel :) keep up the good work

    I love how so many people can't seem to get the peeling trick to work properly.
    When I worked in a Restaurant in Switzerland, they taught me to cut the bottom of the cloves where the shell connects with the garlic stem. When you remove that part, shaking the cloves violently WILL shake them out of their shells or at least loosen it enough for you to just rub the garlic out.
    Also, use a pot instead of a tubberware container, the plastic isn't hard enough to really smash the garlic.
