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

  1. Place a saucepan of water on to boil. Once boiling add pasta to the water. I use San Remo, Pulse Pasta, Penne for extra nutrients and less carbs. Cook as described on box/packet, approx. 8 mins. If you have a thermoserver you can cook your pasta in it using boiling water (stiring occassionally) but it does take longer than stove top.

    Drain Tuna and set aside.
  2. Tuna Sauce
  3. Put parmesan and tasty cheese (both in 2-3cm chunks) in to Closed lid and 12 secs, speed 8. Set aside in a bowl.
    Place a bowl on top of lid and weigh 400g milk. Set aside.
    Add onion to Closed lid and chop 10 secs, speed 8. Scrape down sides and repeat.
    Add butter to Closed lid and saute 3 mins, temp, 100 degrees, speed 2.
    Scrap down sides and add flour to Closed lid.
    Set time 2 mins, temp 90 degrees and speed 2.
    Remove MC and slowly add your milk. Increase to speed 3 after adding milk and putting mc back on.

    Check consistency and if lumpy, set 12 sec, speed 4 and increase to speed 9.
    Now add salt, cheeses, stock paste and tuna to Closed lid (also add optional ingredients here if using them).
    Set 1 min, 90 degrees, Counter-clockwise operation speed 2. Scrape down sides
    Set 4 min, 90 degrees, Counter-clockwise operation speed 2.
    Drain pasta and add to Closed lid. Set 20 sec, Counter-clockwise operation speed 2.
    Ensure pasta is mixed through and serve immediately
