    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

    Ingredient prep
  1. Weigh the pasta into the simmering basket and rinse with cold water to pre wet all the pasta. Set aside.

  2. Put the cheese and cornflour into the TM bowl and grate 6 seconds speed 8. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside. Do not clean bowl.

  3. Put the zucchini in the TM bowl and finely chop 2 seconds speed 5. Put the chopped zucchini on top of the pasta in the simmering basket. Do not clean bowl.

  4. Cooking the pasta
  5. Put the water, cream and vegetable stock into the TM bowl. Insert the simmering basket containing the pasta and zuchinni.

    Cook for 10 minutes Varoma speed 4, MC on.

    Stir the pasta to ensure it is all evenly cooked.

    Cook for further 5 minutes Varoma speed 4, MC on.

    Again, stir the pasta to ensure it is all evenly cooked.

    Cook for  5 more minutes Varoma speed 4, MC on.

  6. While pasta is cooking prewarm the thermoserver with boiling water, and chop the chives.

  7. Once tha pasta is cooked, lift the simmering basket out of the TM bowl using your spatula and transfer the pasta and zucchini into a prewarmed thermoserver bowl and cover with the lid.

  8. Add the reserved cheese and milk to the remaining liquid in the TM bowl and cook for 2 minutes 100 degrees speed 4, MC on.

    Pour the sauce over the pasta in the thermoserver, add the chives and stir through. Leave to rest for 5 minutes before serving.



Accessories you need



The MC is on for all the steps.

The total cooking time for the pasta is 20 minutes.  I have broken it down into steps to make it easy to remember to stir the pasta.

You can speed up the cooking time by submerging the pasta in boiling water in a thermoserver instead of rinsing it in the first step.  Leave it submerged whilst preparing the cheese and zucchini.  Then use boiling water in step 4.  It should then only need 10 minutes to cook, but then omit the milk in the final step or the sauce will be too runny.

Increase the amount of cheese if your like a very strong flavour, the flavour is mild.

It could be made gluten free with the appropiate pasta, you may need to ajust cooking times.

I adapted this recipe from ThermOMG website to simplify it and work in the TM5. I use UHT thickened cream, 200ml packets which we keep as a staple in the pantry.

    Really enjoyed this meal tonight. I steamed some salmon on top while the pasta was cooking. Worked a treat. Thanks for sharing.
