- Place garlic, chilli, spring onions, coriander and oil into TM bowl and chop 3 sec / speed 8. Scrape down and saute 5 mins / Varoma / speed 1 / MC off.
- Add lemon juice, dill, tarragon, stock, wine, cream, cheese and flour and cook 10 mins / 100°C / speed 1
- Add marinara (use spatula to coat with sauce) and cook 4 mins / 100°C / speed 1 / Reverse

Don’t be tempted to add the marinara earlier. It will continue to keep cooking in the Thermoserver. Adding earlier will overcook it.

We absolutley love this Garlic pasta sauce - it is so versatile! None of our household like seafood - so we substitute with cooked pumpkin, chicken and fresh spinach leaves served with ravioli! It is the BOMB!
I think it would also be amazing on a steak!
Thank you Melissa. That's a great idea, particularly with trying it on steak too! :)
This was delicious, restaurant quality apparently 😉. Thank you 🙏🏻 for the recipe
You're welcome Carolyn. Thank you! :)
Thank you for recipe.
Had most ingredients (no dill) and used an onion as had no spring onion.
Was absolutely delicious and will be making this again and again!
So pleased you enjoyed it Vicki. :)
Yummo! (Very rich though!) Used fresh dill, frozen coriander & elbow pasta just so it was easy for kids to eat. Unfortunately I don't have seafood lovers but they enjoyed the sauce! I loved it & I get more seafood & left overs for tomorrow nights dinner!! Also I used Liddels lactose free cream which is thickened but quite runny & worked well! Thanks for a lovely recipe! Cx
Love this. So did the family.
Swapped cream for 1x block of Philly cheese and a small avocado.
Used only smoked salmon and added zuchini and spinach leaves.
Thanks Deb - great to hear that it worked well with Philly cheese! :)
Hi we made this tonight - got 10/10 all round (from 4 & 6yo) too ! Was great for a Saturday night 'easy' meal, inexpensive but yet not take away.
I made this tonight (without prior planning) as I had most of the ingredients on hand; the only two items I didn't have were the dried dill and tarragon. It was delish despite not having included those two items. Also, I didn't have thickened cream, only pouring cream. I'm sure there's a way of thickening cream in the Thermie, I just didn't have the time to research it... Absolutely yummy in any event.
Thanks for posting such a delicious recipe. My thermie only arrived today and this is the first thing I made in it (to start winning over the hubby)! It turned out well. Thumbs up all 'round. But when I was cleaning up I noticed two scorch marks on the base of the bowl. It took quite a lot of scrubbing to get them off. Any ideas what might have caused this and how to avoid them in the future?
I'm not sure what would've caused the scorch marks for you Shan - but my blog post on cleaning will help. :)
Thanks for the link - most helpful! :-)
I also had two scorch marks in my bowl but simply removed them very easily by sprinkling some Bi-carb in the bowl (with blades removed obviously) and using a very wet cloth to create a paste.
