      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      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!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Cook 2 cups of macaroni pasta in a pot of boiling water while you prepare the sauce. 

  2. Cheese Sauce
  3. Place roughly chopped leek in mixing bowl and chop 10sec/Speed 5

    Scrape down bowl

    Add 30g butter and cook 3min/100deg/speed 1 reverse

    Add 30g plain flour and 1 tsp dijon mustard and cook 3min/100deg/speed 1 reverse

    Add 500grams milk, salt and pepper to taste and cook 6min/90deg/speed 4 reverse

    Add 150g grated tasty cheese and combine 15sec/speed 4 reverse

    Combine cooked macaroni pasta and sauce in the pot and pour into a baking dish (I use a 2lt rectangular dish)

    Sprinkle 1tbsp of breadcrumbs over the top, then 50g of parmesan cheese, then 1tbsp of breadcrumbs. If you use a wider, shallower dish you may need more cheese and breadcrumbs. 

    Cook in the oven at 190deg for 20mins 


Accessories you need



You can change the parmesan cheese to any similar cheese. This is mild tasting but you can add extra mustard or omit it if you wish. You could also increase the amount of tasty cheese to 200grams if you like.
