Thermomix Creamy Salami Pasta

Thermomix Creamy Salami Pasta

Serves 4

Shall I tell you a secret? When I first got the Thermomix, I was a bit afraid to use it and would only use it if David was in the house. We were laughing about it the other day, and at how times have changed! These days, I can’t stop using it!

The funny thing is, we don’t cook a lot of main meals in the Thermomix, or not nearly as many as we should. This dish is our tweak on on a golden oldie from the Basic Cookbook and it has stood the test of time – it’s still one of our all time favourites. Sometimes ugly food is the tastiest and this is definitely one of those times! This pasta dish is  quick, easy and we can grab all the ingredients and go. We eat gluten free pasta, which doesn’t fare so well in the Thermie, so we cook it separately on the stove and add it later.  This is one dinner that won’t disappoint!

Do you have a delicious dinner recipe that’s on high roatation? Have you ever been afraid to use a domestic appliance?!

    So true that ugly food is the tastiest although I wouldn’t call this ugly. I love salami so this is my sort of dish!

  • I’m not sure I’m scared of using any of my kitchen appliances but I definitely have too many and don’t use them all – like the ice cream machine….
    I’ve just discovered nduja – its a soft spreadable salami with a kick of chilli. All I do is fry it off, add a load of chopped tomatoes and rocket or spinach leaves and that’s it. Even Rich can make it on his own 🙂 It actually looks exactly like your sauce 🙂

    • I rehomed my ice cream machine because I never used it once I got the Thermomix, or should I say once I was brave enough to use the Thermomix! That nduja sounds right up my eat street. I wonder if we can get it here? Maybe I will look in the Japanese supermarket 🙂

  • We lovee salami so I think we’ll have to try this!

    The only appliance I think I’m scared to use is the mandolin. But it’s not as much scared of it as it is scared of myself being clumsy, haha!
