      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.

Tip

You will need a piping bag to make filling the cannelloni super quick and easy.
You can purchase from TheMixShop either the green Thermomix piping bag, or a packet of 100 disposable bags are also available.
Alternatively you can use make one using baking paper or a plastic bag that you have at home, with the corner cut off.

This is my 'cheats' version which makes it a really quick dish to prepare, and feeds a crowd.

Of course, you can make your own Ricotta in the Thermomix®. Simply follow the recipe in the Basic Cookbook.

You can make your own pasta sauce: Tomato Pasta Sauce can be found in the Basic Cookbook. I'd recommend a double batch for this recipe.

Or for additional veggie smuggling points, the Veggie Loaded Pasta Sauce can be found on Cookidoo.

    Love love love!! So quick and simple - even when I got the kids involved in the piping! I didn't have any pasta sauce so I whipped some up using the recipe out of the Basic Cookbook. I'm grateful for something quick and easy, delicious and nutritious!
