Radicchio and Speck Pasta with Thermomix

Are you looking for a new pasta recipe? Then try the radicchio and speck pasta : a very yummy and easy first dish to prepare with your Thermomix!

Speck is a flavoured and tasty ham, produced in Northern Italy but all Italians love it! It combines perfectly with the bitter taste of radicchio. This combining is often suggested for a risotto recipe, but in this recipe the same ingredients are used to prepare another yummy first dish, for those who love the traditional Italian cuisine dish: pasta!

If you often hear saying "Tomato sauce pasta again?!" when you come back home after work this recipe is perfect for you. A few minutes and you'll shock even the finest palate and for a moment you'll feel like that superwoman everyone is expecting from you. Thanks to Thermomix!

The recipe has been sent by Stefania Arena and I prepare it for supper to my husband who loves speck and to my daughters who will eat some vegetables and won't notice it! ;-)

Other radicchio recipes I suggest are the Radicchio and Pancetta Lasagne, the Meatballs with Braised Radicchio and the Italian Radicchio and Taleggio Cheese Risotto.

Another pasta sauce you find is the Zucchini, Speck and Fontina Cheese one.


- 70 g Butter
- 1 Small Onion
- 150 g Speck
- 150 g Radicchio

How to prepare the Radicchio and Speck Pasta

Put butter and onion in the bowl. 3 Min. 90°C Speed 4.

Cut speck into thin stripes and add to the bowl with chilli pepper and salt. 5 Min. 100°C Speed 2.

Cook pasta and then dress it with this sauce you made.

Stefania's advice

You can replace butter with half grams of oil and half of margarine.

A variation: add 50 g Speck and 50 Radicchio. At the end of cooking, blend 1/3 of the dressing and add it to pasta.
