      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!

If you have pregrated parmesan, you can skip the proper bowl washing and cheese grating steps, and just give the jug a quick rinse out with tap water to cool it down before adding the eggs in.
If you want to add grated parmesan cheese when serving, add in a bit extra when grating and then take some out before adding the eggs.
If you like uniformly chopped/diced bacon, do that by hand and add to the onions & garlic after they've been chopped.
The addition of cooking water at the end helps make the sauce a little creamier, so add as much or as little as you like. I usually add about 1/2 an MC (50-60gm).
Pasta cooking time is based on just regular dried packet spaghetti. If the cooking time on your packet is different, adjust your cooking time accordingly.
