    Great flavour. Only feedback is recipe could include more detail to help - i.e. seems you need to use cooked pasta? and if so be careful not to increase the speed too much when mixing at the end (the last bit seems like commonsense I know but I still recked my dish doing this).

    I found the soft stir was not enough so I increased the speed and by the time it was mixed the texture had gone and I had a pile of mush - beautiful tasting mush but still not quite what I wanted. Probably had too much pasta. I will stir through myself out of thermomix next time to keep the pasta whole. Thankfully I used cooked pasta so did not have the problem of raw pasta metioned by others.

    I made this last night and it was a big hit with my kids. I made the sauce earlier on in the day and then cooked the pasta later on and just stirred the two together. I sprinkled cheese on top and then baked until hot.

    Submitted by Gerowyn on 21. November 2016 - 17:03.

    I have tried a number of variations of this recipe especially trying to solve the pasta issue and I have found the best option is to simply cook the pasta first and add it at the end. I wish I had read the comments before my first batch as I ended up cooking it for nearly an hour before the pasta was cooked and even adding the extra water as suggested by someone did help but still I had to cook it for tripple the time.

    I also found soft stir wasn't enough and bumped it up to spped 4 Counter-clockwise operation

    My variation is at http://www.recipecommunity.com.au/main-dishes-fish-recipes/basic-tuna-mornay-pasta/351164

    I also have added some nutmeg and paprika as suggested by melanie-jade

    Very quick, easy Friday night meal. I cooked pasta separately and mixed through sauce. I added half a zucchini with the onion and garlic, and some nutmeg, paprika and veggie stock paste when cooking the sauce. Quicker than takeaway, and ingredients are all on hand even when the fridge and cupboards are practically bare!

  • If you want to cook the pasta
    Submitted by juliamc21 on 17. October 2016 - 21:26.

    If you want to cook the pasta in the TM with the sauce (less dishes!) add double the amount of boiled water in step 4 I.e. for 300gms pasta add 600gms of boiled water. Stir with spatula to ensure pasta is covered with sauce/liquid then cook for 15-17 minutes. I only had 250gms of pasta so added 500gms of boiled water (or 2 cups). Worked perfectly.

    PASTA does not cook. I kept adding extra time and after a very long time it did cook. But would have been better and so much quicker to cook on the stove. Yummy sauce but I recommend NOT cooking pasta with the mornay in tm.

    Pasta didn't cook. Recipe should be removed. Waste of time and money.

     

    I agree pasta should be removed, however, 'waste of time and money' is a little over the top. These recipes are from regular people, offering their suggestions on meals. I know you're probably perfect in all that you do, however, a simple "the recipe didn't work with the pasta when I tried, I think next time I'll cook the pasta seperate and mix in at the end" might have sufficed... just a suggestion for your future comments

  • This recipe does NOT work
    Submitted by violeto on 20. January 2016 - 21:12.

    This recipe does NOT work with 300g of dry pasta. Perhaps the person that wrote it meant cooked pasta and it would be fine made without pasta. Had to add about 300mL water and cook for longer to make it remotely edible for my hungry 3 year old. A waste of time and ingredients. Remainder ended up in the bin. Not happy tmrc_emoticons.(

    Submitted by Robsquared on 18. November 2015 - 19:13.

    DON'T COOK THE PASTA IN THE BOWL WITH THE SAUCE!  The sauce was too thick to add tuna and pasta to, and wouldn't stir.  I even added an extra 250ml of milk, but I had to turn up the speed for it to mix properly and then of course the pasta got chopped up.  Result - a thick, gluggy, flavourless mess - it needed salt and parmesan cheese.  Hubby wouldn't finish his and refuses to take the leftovers for lunch.  I need a dog!

  • Great recipe when cooking
    Submitted by melanie-jade on 11. November 2015 - 13:08.

    Great recipe when cooking pasta separately. Instead of peas and corn I put in a small head of broccoli, 1 small carrot and zucchini with onion at beginning, then sautéed using the 50g of butter for 5-6 mins. Followed rest of recipe but added 1 tbsp veg stock paste and a bit of grated nutmeg, then stirred the lot through a packet of cooked pasta spirals. I also used mustard powder.

    Thanks, this was lovely. I added in some olive oil and curry powder when sautéing the onions and garlic. I used rice flour and rice milk and omitted the cheese as we are dairy free. I also added in a can of drained pineapple pieces when adding the tuna and veggies. I cooked the pasta separately. Was enjoyed by all!

    Submitted by Ness_r_au on 22. December 2014 - 13:26.

    Great and easy tuna mornay.  The pasta however did not cook.  I put it on for an extra 10 minutes then some was cooked and others not.  At the end I read more comments and realised the solution to this problem was to add hot water and then cook.  I will cook the pasta seperately next time, which will resolve this issue and also be more time efficient.  Overall though a good dish.

    I just made this, agree with the extra thick issue. I made with 300g pasta and also added another 100g of water and it was still thick. 

     

    I also pushed the pasta down with the spatula at the start because I was concerned about it just staying on top.  

     

    With these adjustments it turned out still thick but very yum!

  • I just cooked this tonight
    Submitted by Whoolpet on 3. August 2013 - 21:41.

    I just cooked this tonight and after reading the comments about the pasta not being cooked, i was going to cook it separate but then decided if i was to do that there was probalby no point in owning a Thermomix.

    also it says to saute but does not mention adding any oil, i added 30g at this stage and cooked it for the 2 minutes. the onion was underdone so i will increase to 4 mins next time.

    ok... to cook the pasta in the thermo, i added 260g of Water in step 4 (i used 375g wholegrain penne as this is what i had on hand) i also added 2 x 72g of tinned corn as i had none frozen so i did not drain them, choosing instead to include the extra liquid. and cooked this for 27 minutes for step 4 (extra 10 mins).

    my husband rated this as 5 stars, he said it's really thick and creamy and to "put it on the list", but as i have made so many adjustments i have given it a 3.

    I have noticed most people have done this without pasta.


    This is the first thermomix recipe I have failed at. It should say - use cooked pasta or talk about another way to cook the pasta - as the mixture became quite thick, there was no way for the pasta to cook, hence we had crunchy pasta. The flavour was nice but I would have thought the pasta would have needed to be cooked in a more watery consistency.
