For Mother’s Day Bec got a whiz bang Philips Pasta & Noodle maker. We absolutely love it BUT our grain free pasta recipe wasn’t working in the machine. It was just too wet, so after many a trial and error we’ve developed the perfect Thermomix grain free pasta recipe that will work in the Philips Pasta Machine.

Grain Free Pasta Recipe for The Philips Pasta and Noodle Maker

Ingredients

  • 200g potato starch
  • 150g tapioca starch
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 40g olive oil
  • 5 teaspoons water (exactly 5 tsp)

Directions

Step 1
Add the potato starch (200g), tapioca starch (150g), eggs (3), xanthan gum (2 tsp) and oil (40g) to the bowl and process Speed 6 / 10 seconds. thoroughly scrape down the sides (especially at the bottom of the bowl).
Step 2
carefully add water (5 tsp) and process using the kneading function / 10 seconds.
Step 3
You should get a pebble like consistency to the dough. Pour this into your Philips Pasta & Noodle Machine and set to extrusion only. It should take 2 x 3 minute extrusions to get all of the pasta through and it makes around 550g of fresh grain free pasta.

Now you absolutely do not need fresh pasta for these pasta bakes. Dried packet pasta will work an absolute treat. Here are the recipes we came up with:

Recipe 1 – Spinach and Ricotta Pasta 

Thermomix Spinach and Ricotta Pasta Bake

This recipe is featured in The Comfort Issue of The 4 Blades Magazine (which is being release at 8pm on the day that this podcast goes out). This is an old fave of Bec’s from when she used to eat gluten and dairy way, way back in the day.

This is so delicious.

These giant pasta shells can be a bit difficult to find. You may need to source an Italian deli in your local area.

Spinach and Ricotta is such a classic Italian filling, baked in the tomato sauce with these special pasta shells makes this dish really special.

Recipe 2 – Peta’s Favourite Macaroni Cheese 

Thermomix Macaroni Cheese

Mac and Cheese is a classic! So much so, we featured this recipe in The Classics Issue of The 4 Blades Magazine. It’s also available on Peta’s brilliant blog too. We made this with gluten free short penne pasta as gluten free macaroni is quite difficult to find. It worked great!

Cheese, pasta and bacon is sure to go down an absolute treat!

Recipe 3 – Creamy Roast Pumpkin and Pine Nut Pasta Bake

Thermomix Dairy Free Pasta Bake

This is a new recipe on the blog and it’s a ripper. It makes a heap and is full of delicious surprises. With bites of roasted pumpkin, chicken and toasted pine nuts mixed through a deliciously creamy white sauce this recipe is a winner.

What’s really cool about this recipe is that it can quite easily be made dairy free while still remaining beautifully creamy.
