      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
      For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.

Chicken may be substituted for other meats, however this will change the cooking time.

    I was gifted a big bunch of basil so I made pesto and then cooked this for dinner. Wow! Really tasty and so easy. I used 3 cayenne chillies and it was just enough heat. Thanks for a great recipe.

    Hi, I was just wondering are we supposed to leave the previous (sauce) ingredients in the bowl when adding the water for the pasta? and for the rest of the recipe? Or is the pasta cooked separately to the sauce? Thanks

    Absolutely loved this recipe , as did the teens. Very quick and easy. Served fresh chopped chillies on the side instead of in the cooking so children could eat as well. Definitely will cook again 😊

    Very tasty, rich but definitely worth making.

    I think the chicken was chopped up to much by the blades, next time I'd cook the chicken with the butterfly.

    Instead of using pasta, this recipe would be a good filling for chicken pies & volovants etc
