The Bear-Naked Chef with Adrian De Berardinis Episode 3: Pappardelle Pasta with Bacon & Peas

Adrian De Berardinis, cookingThe Bear-Naked Chef better known as Adrian De Berardinis is back with the third episode of his cooking show. In this episode Adrian cooks parpadelle pasta with bacon & peas in a video that runs about eleven and one half minutes long.

The recipe shown below is inspired by a dish from one of Adrian’s favorite New York City Italian restaurants, Bar Pitti in Soho.

If you’ve not watched the scantily clad (he only wears an apron) chef, I’d suggest you check it out. I made his Paccheri Con Gamberi a couple of weeks ago and it was both easy and delicious.

cooking, bear-naked chef, Adrian De Berardinis  It has been a long time since I shared a cooking post so I’d like to thank the very handsome Adrian De Berardinis for his YouTube show: Bear-Naked Chef, which inspired me to try making Adrian’s Paccheri Con Gamberi (pasta and shrimp).

I modified Adrian’s recipe in two ways. First, Adrian used jalapeños, which Sergio doesn’t like so I opted to include red pepper flakes to the olive oil when I heated up the pan and that added sufficient heat and flavor.

Second, I diced vine ripe tomatoes unlike Adrian’s more ‘butch’ crushing of pearl tomatoes; otherwise the video below pretty much sums up how to make this delicious pasta dish. Thanks for the inspiration Adrian.

paccheri-con-gambrelI love cooking and was able to make this dinner (with a couple of modifications) in approximately 30 minutes and since the shrimp was on sale, the total cost of the meal was about $10 and allowed for Sergio and I both to get seconds. You can check out how I made this by watching Adrian’s 7+ minute episode below.

An easy recipe that everyone will want to try.”

Because of the popularity of The Bear-Naked Chef episode 1 post, I plan on sharing future episodes.  Enjoy this latest YouTube cooking show from Adrian.
