We recently had a holiday in Port Douglas to celebrate my best friends 40th birthday. It was a family friendly holiday with many lazy afternoons spent in the pool. As we were staying in a motel style room at the Ramada there were no cooking facilities, so I took Thelma, my Thermomix. One night we felt like creamy garlic prawn penne. After searching online I couldn’t find a recipe, so made one up. It’s delicious. We had it again tonight and a couple of other people have tried it. So I think it’s safe to say that it works 🙂

Unfortunately my friend didn’t get to try it as she ended up in hospital. If I lived closer I would cook it for her!

    Made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious. Thank you for sharing.

  3. I’m glad you tried it Heather. Any changes necessary? I haven’t made it without the Thermomix. Josh even cooked spag bol in Thelma tonight. It’s just easy!

    Lovely to meet you too Susan. I have heard that Thermomix is in US. Well I know the cook books are 🙂

      No, no changes needed. Next time I won’t make the sauce as thick as I did ( multi-tasking towards the end doesn’t help!)
