Jimmy Kimmel shares recipe for ‘Pasta Tina,’ the made-up meal his kids can’t get enough of

Jimmy Kimmel is temporarily trading his job as late night comic for in-house chef.

In a YouTube video posted Wednesday, Kimmel shared the recipe for “Pasta Tina,” a dish he invented that has become “one of the few things” his young children will eat.

Kimmel first mentioned the made-up meal during his remote appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday.

“They demand this every day,” Kimmel told DeGeneres about his kids’ craving for the dish. “Every single meal. I say, ‘What do you guys want?’ And every meal, they say, ‘Pasta Tina.’ “.

In his instructional cooking video, Kimmel shared the recipe for Pasta Tina, named after his 5-year-old daughter Jane’s mispronunciation of “pastina,” a variety of pasta.

The recipe calls for salt, olive oil, one box of small-sized pasta, one can of cannellini beans, three cloves of squashed garlic, a spoonful of Minor’s chicken base or vegetable base and Parmesan cheese.

To make his dish a bit healthier, Kimmel said he adds a sauce made from blended beans so his kids “won’t know they’re eating beans.”.

Here’s the full recipe, step-by-step:.

  • Boil a pot of water with a little salt.
  • Add the pasta to the boiling water for about 8 minutes.
  • While the pasta is cooking, begin your sauce by blending the cannellini beans. Try not to cut your finger.
  • Take 3 cloves of garlic, squash them, remove from the skin and place them in a pot over medium-low heat with a little olive oil. If you want to get fancy, you can tilt the pot and place the garlic in the olive oil to infuse the flavor and really get the garlic lightly golden. If the garlic browns, throw it away and start over.
  • Stir the pasta and make sure it isn’t sticking to the bottom.
  • Once the garlic is golden, remove it from the pot (optional), add the blended cannellini beans and a spoonful of the Minor’s chicken (or vegetable) base. Stir everything together.
  • When the pasta is ready, drain it in a colander, put the pasta back into the original pot and add the cannellini bean sauce. Mix it all up.
  • Serve with parmesan cheese.
  • After demonstrating how to make the dish – and accidentally cutting his finger in the process – Kimmel presented the meal to Jane and his two-year-old son Billy.

    “It’s good,” Jane told the camera, in between bites.

    Kimmel shares Billy and Jane with his wife Molly McNearney. He also has two older children – Kevin and Katie – with ex-wife Gina.

    Kimmel isn’t the only celebrity going the extra mile to keep kids happy in quarantine. CBeebies Grown-Ups, a BBC kids’ program, announced on Twitter Wednesday that actor Tom Hardy will appear on the channel to read children’s bedtime stories every night from April 27 until May 1.
