    TM 5
    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!

    OK.
    Not much flavour.
    Had to add double the parmesen, and added feta at the end.
    Don't think i'll be making this again - mainly becasue my basil plant can't handle having 40grams of leaves removed... Wink

    YUM! I halved the parmesan to reduce the salt factor, and still so scrumptious. I'll admit to even eating a spoonful by itself - guilt-free thanks to knowing exactly what's in it! Great mixed with tomato and Thermie-made ricotta for a fresh salad.

    Thank you for this recipe. I have been wanting to make pesto but kept postponing because I thought it was going to be difficult. Your recipe is so easy and so yummy.

    Easy to make, tasty and a good standby dip or pasta sauce.  Next time I think that I'll add the oil to the dip rather than cover the dip with oil.

    Made this version (smaller quantities & slightly different proportions to the EDC book). Stirred it through angel hair pasta and sliced some barbecued chicken breasts over the top - delicious and quick meal! Thanks.
