Amy Jean’s Kitchen: Buddy’s Pasta (Binging with Babish)



I have watched the movie Elf a countless number of times

and even as a kid watching Will Ferrell eat the infamous

pasta made my lip turn up in disgust. However, now that

I am grown and I can eat whatever I dang well please I decided

it was time to give Buddy’s pasta a try. I mean…it couldn’t be

that bad…right? Wrong. Wrong on a million levels.

It was bad. 0/10 do not recommend. HOWEVER, it was a very

fun experience. Would I make it again to eat? Hell no.

(I honestly have no idea how Ferrell was able to eat it for the

movie…they had to have taken out the spaghetti sauce right? lol)

But would I make it again to add to the experience of watching one

of my favorite Christmas movies? Oh you betcha. (Although imma

be sure to leave all the ingredients separate. Lol) Would you

make and eat Buddy’s Pasta?





Kosher salt

½ lb spaghetti

½ cup jarred tomato sauce

Handful of chocolate chips

Handful of M&M’s

1 chocolate fudge Pop-Tart, crumbled

Handful of mini marshmallows

Maple syrup, for serving

Caramel sauce, for serving

Chocolate sauce, for serving




1.) In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the spaghetti

according to the package directions. Drain.


2.) In a large sauté pan, heat the tomato sauce over

medium-high heat until bubbling, about 1 minute. Toss the

pasta with the tomato sauce, then transfer to a shallow bowl.

Top the pasta with the chocolate chips, M&M’s, Pop-Tart

pieces, and mini marshmallows. Drizzle with maple syrup, caramel

sauce, and chocolate sauce, and serve.
