I would cook the ragu 1st keep it warm while you are cooking the pasta I would cook the pasta on the varoma setting for 10mins sspeed 2 then taste it if it to your liking strain , I always save  some  water just incase the sauce is too dry.

I have made pizzette with 30g of this dough

and cooked them on a very hot cast iron pan about 1-2mins on each side

top with nap sauce and cheese, under grill or breville sandwich maker to melt cheese

only made 4 just to try it out. Very nice. Will make more and freeze all ready  made with sauce and cheese
the rest of the dough is in the oven, smells  so good.

Still look for my cord thing to upload photos, I think the kids have it. They hate it when I upload photos of them.

So happy with result

cup castor sugar
4 egg whites
Pinch cream of tartar
tsp vanilla
2 tsp cornflour
1 tbsp castor sugar (additional)

Insert Butterfly, add egg whites, cream of tartar and vanilla to TM bowl. Whip until very stiff and glossy for 6 minutes on speed 3 before gradually adding the sugar, cornflour for a further 10 minutes on speed 3.

Pre-heat oven to 160C and line a  Baking Tray (24 x 32cm) with baking paper. Set aside.

Spread onto prepared tray and sprinkle with additional caster sugar and almonds.
Bake for 10-15 minutes. Turn onto another piece of baking paper, tear away base paper and allow to cool for 5 min

Filling Ingredients
500g cream
Passionfruit pulp
 kiwi fruit

Insert Butterfly. Place cream into TM bowl and whip for 20-40 seconds on speed 3 until very thick. Spread the cream over the Pavlova surface and top with fruit.
Roll up the Pavlova from the short end. Immediately place on serving plate and chill before serving.

I will upload pic , when I find my cord thing

Next time I will try cutting down on the time it took to add the sugar

Was getting a bit worried that doing a Rolled Pavlova was not going to work in the TM.
Just, received the news letter with the recipe ;D. Hopefully my TM will be here next.
