Tip

The MC is on for all the steps.

The total cooking time for the pasta is 20 minutes.  I have broken it down into steps to make it easy to remember to stir the pasta.

You can speed up the cooking time by submerging the pasta in boiling water in a thermoserver instead of rinsing it in the first step.  Leave it submerged whilst preparing the cheese and zucchini.  Then use boiling water in step 4.  It should then only need 10 minutes to cook, but then omit the milk in the final step or the sauce will be too runny.

Increase the amount of cheese if your like a very strong flavour, the flavour is mild.

It could be made gluten free with the appropiate pasta, you may need to ajust cooking times.

I adapted this recipe from ThermOMG website to simplify it and work in the TM5. I use UHT thickened cream, 200ml packets which we keep as a staple in the pantry.

    I omitted the zucchini as I didn't have one. I added a shake of garlic powder and onion powder to the cheese. I added extra Parmesan and a handful of sharp cheddar. Other than that I followed the recipetmrc_emoticons.)

    I just love this recipe I added chicken in the top tray of the varoma for the whole time of the cooking. This time I fried up some bacon and onion in the fry pan while it was cooking and added it at the end to the thermoserver was absolutely sensational. I haven't used any packets or jars since finding this recipe it works perfectly every time and the whole family loves it!

    Deilish!.... I added a shake of garlic flakes as someone suggested above, and I didn't cook as long as I didn't want my elbow mac, do go soggie. I also used hot water in thermoserver first with pasta while I did zuchuni. so stared with hot water. so that could be why didn't take too long to cook.

    I would def add more garlic granules next time, and some salt and peper, in the cook thru, def will add a little more cheese too. but so easy and so much better than that packet! thank you for a great recipe

  • Alfredo pasta - We love this

    Submitted by Leaps on 18. July 2016 - 19:24.

    Alfredo pasta - We love this dish in our house! It's particularly good with the Perorino Romano cheese that I get from my local continental grocer. It's so simple and so tasty, and I love that it's all done in one bowl. I don't put the chopped zucchini in with the pasta to cook, I put it in a Thermoserver then add the cooked pasta and sauce and stir through as I find the heat of the pasta and sauce is enough to 'cook' the zucchini. It serves three in our household (we love our pasta!). Five stars! Thanks for sharing!

    Submitted by MrsQ on 22. June 2016 - 20:01.

    This is delicious.! Tastes just like the packet Alfredo pasta except way better, no fake processed taste. I added a tsp dried garlic to the cream and water mix for a bit more flavour, 60g Parmesan and added the chives to the cheese sauce whilst cooking. So full of flavour.!  My pasta took ages to cook, an extra 10 mins, but that may have been because it was a large spiral low GI pasta. Was a winner with miss fussy 4yo, So will definitely be making this again. Thanks for a fantastic recipe.!

  • I made some minor edits to

    Submitted by Cattywompuss on 18. April 2016 - 22:06.

    I made some minor edits to the recipe today.  I moved the addition of the cornflour to step 1, so that it is mixed in with the cheese when you grate it.  This is because I often found that the cornflour would not mix in completely if it landed in the middle of the blades.  Mixing it in the the cheese means that there are never any lumps and that is how I have been cooking it for some time now.  Also, sometimes I don't have 30 minutes to make it and I have a faster method that uses boiling water from a kettle to start the pasta cooking while I am using the thermomix to prepare the cheese and zuchinni.  After weighing the pasta into the basket I put the basket in a thermoserver and cover with boiling water.  I remove the basket and hot pasta using the hook on the TM spatular, add the chopped zuchinni and place in the TM jug.  Then I use 550g of the hot water remaining in the thermoserver.  It then only needs 10 minutes to cook, stirring once, and the thermoserver is already preheating.  However, due to the reduced cooking time less water boils off, therefore dont add the milk or the sauce will be too thin.  I am glad that your families are enjoying the recipe.  My husband always likes a little cheddar added in with the parmesan, and he and my two boys only just found out there was zuchinni in it ! They have been eating it for a year!
