6 or so mushroom cups sliced
1 tsp crushed garlic

1 beaten egg

To Prepare:
Grate cheese speed 5 to 10, keep aside.
Place all the ingredients in Tmx except the egg and program 15 mins, temp. 100ยบ, speed 1, reverse speed.
2 mins before the end, pour egg through the hole. Pour into serving dish, turn it upside down and turn the black screw part of the bottom of the blades, back and forth and all the pasta will fall out easily. Sprinkle cheese over the top.

So I did these up for lunch the other day, very tasty :)
Do a pizza dough like here then add some blitzed up garlic and rosemary, and good splash of oil and a good pinch of sea salt :)
Very tasty indeed.
