1/2 onion OR 2 spring/green onions
1 clove garlic
4 sprigs of parsley
Red chili pepper to taste
1/2 red capsicum/pepper thinly sliced and halved
100 g broccoli cut into florets
20g olive oil
200 g button mushrooms
100 g frozen peas
1 tin/can of diced tomatoes
200 g coconut milk
1 tbsp stock
salt to taste
**1-2 diced chicken breast should there be a meat eater
300g pasta (we really like the large shells with this sauce!)
Add onion, garlic, parsley and chili to TM bowl. Chop for 5 seconds, speed 7. Scrape down sides.
Add capsicum, broccoli and oil to TM bowl. Saute for 5 minutes, 100°, REVERSE, speed 1.
Add mushrooms, peas, tomatoes, coconut milk, water, stock and salt. Cook for 10 minutes, 100°, speed 1. (VAROMA TEMP IF YOU ARE STEAMING CHICKEN FOR THIS STEP)
**At this point place a dampened piece of parchment paper in the large Varoma covering all of the bottom and sides (do not leave gaps around the corners or the chicken juice will leak into the TM bowl and the vego's won't like that!!!) Place, with lid, on top of the TM bowl (without the measuring cup of course).
Add pasta to TM bowl. Cook for 7-10 minutes (read the packet and reduce the time by 2 minutes as the pasta will continue to cook in the TM bowl or serving dish and you do not want a gluggy mess), 100°, REVERSE, soft speed. Check the pasta for firmness- you will want a bit of bite to it otherwise you will find it overcooks just in the time it takes to serve it.
Garnish with fresh parsley. Serves 4. Enjoy!
Yum, yum, yum! This pasta dish is quick and simple with the ability to easily add meat should there be the need (think Varoma!) Many people are afraid to add the pasta in to the sauce but I much prefer to use only the Thermomix when whipping up a quick, but nutritious, dinner and not bother with the oven or stovetop and I have perfected this pasta dish just so. The original inspiration came from Trish B on the Official Thermomix Recipe Community.
