My foodie 9 year old daughter Kalita made the variations to this recipe from one in a Thermomix cookbook. It is her version of fast food and so easy for her to make. As this is a favourite in our house we usually double the mixture and make it in the TM bowl while the spaghetti is cooking in a pot on the stove.

  • I have to admit we change

    I have to admit we change this recipe every time we make it. But we usually use a 250g tub of the philly cooking cream I think it is called. Or a 250g block of philly cheese. We look in the fridge and see what we have and go from there. It is never the same twice! Hope that helps tmrc_emoticons.)

    Last time we made this we chopped up some broccoli and added it in too.
