Recipe's preparation

  1. Place garlic clove, basil and brown onion (peeled and halved) into mixing bowl, and chop at 5 sec/ speed 5, then add extra virgin olive oil and diced bacon and saute 3 min/ 120 degrees/ speed 1.
  2. Add crushed tomatoes, salt, pepper, and stock paste and baby spinach, place steaming basket on lid and cook at 10 min/ 100 degrees/ speed 1.
  3. At this stage bring saucepan of water to boil on stove top, once boiled place gnocchi in water and allow to cook, gnocchi is cooked when water returns to the boil.
  4. Add greek yoghurt and allow to cook for additional 5 min/ 100 degrees/ speed 1.

  5. Transfer gnocchi and sauce into thermosaver, mix and serve.


If using homemade gnocchi it may be easier to steam the gnocchi using the varoma, only vary the temp to be set at varoma. I used store bought gnocchi for this recipe. If you are wanting more, or feeding hungry people, just double the amount of gnocchi and add an extra can of crushed tomatoes! 

Thermomix Model

  • Appliance TM 5 image
    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.
    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!
