Did you enjoy this farfallina?

Also what is that oval shaped dish in the last photo? Is that a TM product?

I can say that I liked it CreamPuff63 even though I wouldn't say it is one of the best recipes ever. It depends on one's palate let's say.

As for the oval shaped dish... It was a present from Thermomix yes, when we bought there was a promotion, you could get that dish or thermomix travel bag. I picked that one as I didn't need to move my TM from one place to another.
It has thermo features. You put food inside, close the lid, it helps you to keep warm for a while.

Ooh, this is such a classic German comfort food. I haven't eaten it in years, but seeing your recipe has suddenly made me miss it. I'm going to make it this weekend as a treat :-)
