Thanks for the recipe, very quick and easy but not as yum as I thought it would be,  would make it again occasiOnally as a quick mid week meal.

Make this when I have extra cream. This is the recipe I blitzed for 7 seconds by accident, before the pasta was added. Turned into pies & a hit with kids.

First time making this and it was delicious!! Had to stop myself from going back for seconds!! I did not put mushrooms or avocado in it, because we don't eat them and I added a little bit of cornflour to thicken it up. I made my own fresh pasta and cooked it in a saucepan. My husband and young girls loved this recipe too. Will definitely be making it again.

This recipe sounded so delicious ... sadly I have just completed the part where I have cooked the meat and cream / evap milk, and the milk appears to have curdled.  :o   I imagine it will still taste wonderful, but it looks a little lumpy.  Any clues?  ??? ???

I made this for a quick tea tonight. I used 100 ml water but next time will add more, didn't have mushrooms so added 1/2 cup diced pumpkin at the same time as the chicken.  It was really yum. Will definitely make this again.

What am I doing wrong with main meals? I did this to the letter apart from the fact I had middle bacon, used chicken stock concentrate from quirky jo, only had tube pasta and my cream had been previously frozen. Why did my meal end up a thick mush? I couldn't see the chicken or avo and while eating a green coloured oil seeped out (green probably from the disappearing avo!). It's not this recipe, all the above comments vouch for that, I just don't know where I'm going wrong.

I haven't done this recipe but CKC when using evaporated milk I add a bit of cornflour to it before adding it to the TM bowl to prevent it curdling and Brumington, did you see these notes from maddy and too obvious but are you sure you had it on reverse?

Note: If you are using 300g dried fettuccine.....you will need to add 300g water.  You will need to use the spatula to help incorporate once added.
I used 300g pasta, and cooked for the full 10 minutes, and placed in thermoserve for 5 minutes to help thicken sauce.
I added the avocado and mushies in at the last 5 minutes of cooking (which held their shape then).
Your jug will be filled to capacity, and feed a hungry family of 5 easily

Thanks JD. I did read it then totally forgot to add the extra water. Duh! Perhaps that was my problem. I'd imagine the weight of everything shredded it all to a pulp. It was definitely on reverse. I'm just losing all confidence with main meals apart from those that have huge amounts of sauce like curries.
