Binging with Babish: Buttered Noodles from Community

Avaldati 26 mai 2020
This week, we're double-dipping in the world of Dan Harmon's lovable, irreverent collegiate caricature: Community. I'm here to defend the "weird" favorite food of Abed Nadir: buttered noodles. Yes, that impossibly plain side dish/cafeteria filler/thing you eat when you're sick. With a few simple tricks, we can upgrade this ubiquitous underdog into something worth making all on its own.

  • parmesan and butter is real italian afredo

  • Alternatively, cook the pasta in a high walled sauté pan. You can toss it up in the air for airating it, and you don’t have to mess with bending the pasta in

  • If you put garlic salt in it is really good

  • After this and I still haven't tried buttered noodles.

    • This is probably the easiest thing to make and taste great, you should try it

  • I'll do you one better. Boil some pasta (My favorite is penne) Drain Let it dry a little so that it's sticky, but not wet. Put butter and garlic (fresh and chopped or garlic powder) in a sauté pan Sauté the pasta in the butter and garlic till it gets nice surfaces and goes golden brown on one or all sides Eat and thank me later. Babbish the hell out of this by using really good ingredients.

  • Never eaten buttered noodles and never heard of em until i watched community

  • i grew up on buttered noodles lmao

  • I never ate butter noodles

  • I've made this a couple of times now, and its true, you can definitely taste the difference between good pasta & butter. I gave it to my 12 year old son who loves buttered noodles to test out if he noticed any difference, and: "Nope". Main lessons are that its easier to mix the melted butter, salt, and starchy water in a separate pan, then pour the mixture back into the drained noodles and coat them there, and don't waste good pasta and butter on 12 year olds.

  • RIP to whoever cleaned up that broken pasta

  • Bettie Botter bought some butter, "But," she said "the butter's bitter, if I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter", so, she bought some better butter, better than her bitter butter, and put it in her batter. So 'twas better Bettie Botter bought a bit of better butter.

(srry for the grammar I can't be bothered to fix it today lol)

  • let's not lie to the audience and say the butter was from "happy cows" those cows aren't happy. I know that, you know that, just be fucking honest, dude. I won't be so much of an annoying vegan if you're honest about where your food comes from, but you're blatantly lying in this video. Just be fucking honest, okay?
