Binging with Babish: Ziti and Lasagna from The Sopranos

  • Ajoutée 17 sept. 2019
  • Rarely does food play such a central character in a TV show or movie that's not specifically about food, but in The Sopranos, it might as well be one of the family. The crown jewel of which, despite Artie Bucco's hapless attempts, is the cuisine of Carmela Soprano. Strap on your gold President and build a ramp for the ducks, because it's time to emotionally repress our murderous mentality with some cheesy, saucy pasta - with a layer of basil underneath the cheese, of course.

    Wait, so baked Ziti doesn't require 7 cups of salt, 18 cups of oregano and 9 onions?

    You haven't tried ricotta until you've had it fresh from Galati cheese in Windsor, ON, Canada. Sounds unbelievable I know, but you won't know until you try. Worth the trip...from a fellow foodie

    May be a running shtick, but why does Babish disagree with Ricotta? I do like the creaminess it brings, but only used it once recently.

    I made the Babish version of baked ziti and it was amazing. The only mistake was using ricotta instead of cottage cheese because that's what I had on hand, and I think it was the only weak point - although it may have been because I didn't add any salt into the cheese/egg mixture which made it kind of bland. I will try again with cottage cheese and see if that makes it better, and if not I will just need to add a bit of salt into it before it gets all mixed up and it should be perfect.

    What is this foolery? Pre-cooking lasagna noodles?! WHY?!
    Don't they sell the good ones, those plates that cook perfectly?.... only in America, eh?;) Then again, you people do not make a lasagna, as it is supposed to be made, with a Bechamel sauce on top. Don't you regularly use

    My dad mixes ricotta and small curd whole milk cottage cheese with shredded mozzarella then tops it with grated parmesan for each cheese layer of a lasagna.
    His lasagna is still my favourite to this day.
    Edit: I was angrily corrected about what specific cottage cheese he uses😪

    Just made the rigatoni last night. It was a HUGE hit. My first time making bechamel.. it really made a huge difference. However, I think made enough sauce to make 3 full pans.

    Hey Babish, I've watched a lot of your videos and noticed you tend to use tomatoes from a can for a lot of your recipes, I've never even seen canned tomatoes, could you tell me what's the reasoning behind not just using regular fresh ones?

  • Josh Mansfield

    I am not a huge fan of ricotta either. I have found in my lasagna that If I mix the ricotta into the sauce just prior to assembly, it gives the lasagna a nice flavor without ruining the consistency.
