    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!

Accessories you need



If using homemade gnocchi it may be easier to steam the gnocchi using the varoma, only vary the temp to be set at varoma. 

I used store bought gnocchi for this recipe. 

If you are wanting more, or feeding hungry people, just double the amount of gnocchi and add an extra can of crushed tomatoes!
