    I used milk because I had no cream, still very yummy but I should add more flour to thicken. Otherwise using cream would be thick enough.
    A+ with my boys in the house. A definate keeper.
    Oh,,,, Lots of Salt n Pepper had to be added tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Made this tonight with GF

    Submitted by Cheryl Westbury on 31. May 2016 - 19:28.

    Made this tonight with GF Rice Vegeroni, Lactose Free light cream and GF plain flour. Omitted the Parmesan and sprinkled with lactose free grated cheese. Delish! Kids both had seconds!

  • Whole family ate this!

    Submitted by needilup girl on 29. April 2016 - 22:49.

    Whole family ate this! Including 1.5 year old and 7 year old.  Very impressed with the all in one pot approach. And I liked using carrot ribbons instead of just chunks of carrot because it definitely made it more appealing to everyone.

    I used an onion instead of a leek. And although I used sprigs of thyme this time, I probably wont worry about it or will just use a little dried thyme next time if I've run out.

    The beauty of this recipe was that I could make it before school pickup, and by the time we finished after school activities and made it back home, the casserole was ready to eat straight from the thermoserver.  Definitely a winner on a cold day.

  • Omited the wine as we haven't

    Submitted by AmesinAus on 19. February 2016 - 20:04.

    Omited the wine as we haven't got any, just added 50g extra water. Only had 150g light sour cream, added a dash of milk, no brocolli, 2 frozen blocks of spinach and added left over roast chicken near the end. So yummy! I bet it tastes even better if you stick to the recipe. Will make again for sure.

    Submitted by ThermiKylie on 4. January 2016 - 11:58.

    This was delicious. I used onion instead of leek and left out the thyme. I always use GF pasta which takes less time to cook, so cooked this on the stove at step 5 - this saved heaps of time. I also did extra carrot and zucchini ribbons and corn instead of broccoli. You can actually use whatever veg you like. The family loved it.

  • This was so yummy! Thank you

    Submitted by gina-s on 12. October 2015 - 20:04.

    This was so yummy! Thank you for adding it to the recipe collection. I have saved it to make again. I did a slight variation. I followed steps 1-5 but added tinned corn instaed of carrot and brocoli. Then to save time I left the chicken and sauce in the Thermomix, then added the cheese, 1 1/2 cups of water, 200g pasta and cooked for 15 mins/100 degrees/Counter-clockwise operation/Gentle stir setting. The pasta was aldente and the sauce was just the right consistency.
