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

  • Published on Mar 25, 2016
  • 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.

    Once tried this recipe because I had almost nothing left in the house, except for the ingredients to make Aglio e Olio (as it turned out as I was looking for recipes with those ingredients). It blew me away, it truly is greater than the sum of its parts.

    I tried this recipe, and it was good.... until I added 1/2 a fucking lemon!!!!! Jeeezuzz! 1/2 a lemon is TOO MUCH LEMON!!!! But other than that, very good!
    Edit: so, I used just a little bit of baking soda to cut through the sourness, and oh man!!!! It worked and it’s great!!!!

    If you crush the garlic with a knife you can peel it much easier. Plus it will form something called allicin which, I believe is really good for your immune system

    I cooked this dish for my mother and she loved it.
    I felt the recipe was a bit light in protein, so I added smoked turkey cubes and it was delicious; a very quick, easy and filling pasta plate.
    Thank you, chef!

    That intro Fraiser song takes me back. My high school geography teacher told the class she watches Fraiser. Whilst I dabbled in some Fraiser if it was on TV after school, I was by no means mature enough to appreciate the depth and humour presented within. Now that I am older, I look back fondly on those toss salads and scrambled eggs.

    Why do americans have this misconception that italian couisine it's only GARLIC GARLIC and more GARLIC? Yes, garlic is a central ingredient in "aglio e olio," but we remove it from the oil before we add the pasta. Garlic is meant to realease it's flavour in the oil, but we dont eat it in chunks.

  • Ilaria Fede
    Ilaria Fede Month ago

    As an italian this is truly disturbing. It's called "spaghetti aglio e olio" so please just put garlic (aglio) and oil(olio), no lemon juice and no pepper. Put salt in the water and not on the pasta(or it will not "melt") and use spaghetti, not linguine. MAMMA MIA.

    I found the best way to peel garlic and(lots of it) is to take your chefs knife and with the heel of your palm against the BACK of the blade, give it a GOOD SMACK! The shell seperates can do more than one clove at a time!! 🇫🇷
