Binging with Babish: Trenette Al Pesto from Luca

This week, we're taking a crack at a Ligurian classic, beautifully portrayed in Pixar's Luca: toothsome pasta tossed in a bright, fresh basil pesto, dotted with creamy potatoes and crisp green beans. How could I possibly screw this one up? Let's find out in the comments!

    The "familiar motion" comment made me literally go 🤦‍♂️ but also made me hit the 👍. Chef John would be proud of your use of innuendo.

    This not very relevant but I want to bring awareness to something I have been going through which I think is important I lost my sense of taste 9 days ago first I thought it’s COVID-19 but my results came back negative. After a lot of investigation I found out that I have something called “Pine nut syndrome” which I didn’t know is a thing, but yeah I ate pine nuts in a pasta meal and apparently some species of pine nuts (specifically Chinese pine nut) cause this syndrome, it takes about a day after consuming the pine nuts for the symptoms to show. Which are mainly loss of taste but you have a constant metallic taste in your mouth, like I can’t taste meat, chicken, bread, fish, sugar nothing whatever I eat I taste either nothing or the stronger version of the metallic taste which is constant in my mouth. I think a main factor which help with diagnosing it is that your sense of smell stays fully functioning and you can smell the aromas of the food in your mouth but you can’t taste the food. Its very miserable am hungry but I can’t eat and I read it takes 2-4weeks for this to go away. This apparently a relatively new condition not alot of research is available my guess it has to do with unethical practices it’s known that very few pine nuts are edible but of course the inedible varieties are cheaper so there are unethical companies who package and sell them to unaware customers, please do your research and avoid these to save your self the agony and also so stores stop selling them. I realise most people don’t know this, I went to three doctors who couldn’t diagnose it and when I figured it out and told them it was the first time they heard of this understandably so. It’s definitely relatively a new thing but it’s becoming more and more common. I believe most people who get it can’t relate the cause to the pine nuts because it takes about a day for the symptoms to show and by the time there are many other suspects. Anyway I hope this helps bring awareness about this and I encourage everyone to do their own research. Ps pesto sauce which is prepared by these specific pine nut can cause the same thing.
