    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

    Fettucine and Sauce
  1. Place parmesan into the mixing bowl and grate 10 sec / Speed 9.  Transfer into a thermoserver and set aside.  Clean and dry the mixing bowl.

  2. Place broccoli florets into the Varoma dish (deep part) and set aside.

  3. Place brown onion, garlic and parsley into the mixing bowl.  Chop 5 seconds / Speed 5.  Scrape the mixing bowl down.

  4. Add the bacon and butter to the mixing bowl, and place the Varoma into position.  Sauté for 6 minutes / 120 / reverse / Speed 2.

  5. Remove the Varoma and add the water, cream and stock concentrate to the mixing bowl.  Reposition the Varoma and cook 10 minutes / Varoma / Reverse / Speed 3.

  6. Remove the Varoma and add the dried fettuccine, snapped in half, to the mixing bowl, and stir with the spatula to ensure all the pasta is submerged in the sauce.  Reposition Varoma and cook for 5 minutes / 100 / Reverse / Speed 1.  

    Check on the broccoli at this point and if it is cooked to your liking, set the Varoma dish aside, place MC on the mixing bowl lid and continue cooking the pasta and sauce for a further 6 minutes / 100 / Reverse / Speed 1.

    If the broccoli needs more time, leave the Varoma in position and cook together with the pasta and sauce for a further 6 minutes / 100 / Reverse / Speed 1.

    Note:  Total cooking time for the pasta and sauce is 11 minutes.  Broccoli may only need 5 depending on personal preference.

  7. During the cooking time in Step 6, pan fry the bacon garnish until crisp and set aside until ready to serve.

  8. Transfer the cooked pasta and sauce to the thermoserver and stir to combine with the reserved parmesan set aside in Step 1.

  9. Add the broccoli to the thermoserver and stir gently to incorporate, so as not to break up the florets.

  10. Garnish with the pan fried bacon pieces and the optional parsley and flaked parmesan if desired, and serve immediately.


Accessories you need



I have used both fresh and frozen broccoli when creating this recipe, and my personal preference is for the broccoli to be cooked till it is soft.  I found it needed the full 11 minutes cook time in Step 6 to get to this stage.
