    “You heard it here first people—these noods are even more bangin’ than Cacio e Pepe. Don’t knock it ‘til you try it!

      hahaha I just realized that Brad for all his laid back on camera is super nosy!!! Everytime anyone is doing a clip...if he is around on the background he is always checking things out...Andy can just do his stuff ...But Brad seems to have a desperate need to be in the know, lol. Nice to see he is needy like everyone else

      The noods were super good, I made them like a month ago! But grating all the parm by hand took me almost an hour and a super sore arm.

      I veganised it. Now it's my favourite pasta dish.
      Yes, it works well with gluten-free pasta options and the like.

              Not the proper Italian way.
              Secondly as a chef your hair is disgustingly over food. Please tie your hair up. Then theres the nose cleaning at 7.16 in the background.

                            Your pasta is not done if there is stil a white bit in the center. Americans... and european food. Never ending story.

                                Literally went to the store after watching this. 100% worth the trip. I have lunch for tomorrow and regret nothing. this was so easy and delicious. I can just imagine making this for a group dinner with a side of salmon and some veggies.

                                            Serious Eats teaches to use less water for the pasta to increase the starch concentration, which helps everything constitute together nicely in the sauce. Less separation, more flavourful pasta, and, in my experience, better mouthfeel. I wonder if following that step would also mean you can get away with using less salt in the water.
