In the video, Tucci said he used leftover Farfalle pasta in the dish and a few other traditional Italian ingredients.
"So I sautéed garlic, onion, pancetta and some peas, and then put them into a little casserole dish with the pasta and then Béchamel sauce, and mixed it all up with things of butter on top and parmesan," Tucci added.
To end the video, Tucci pulled the pasta casserole out of the oven to show what the dish looked like.
"Oh my God, and what time is it? It's only 10 o'clock in the morning, and I think I'm going to have it right now," he continued.
