Marmite Spaghetti (Nigella Lawson’s Recipe)

   

Marmite Spaghetti

Marmite is something you either love or hate. The guys at Marmite knew this, and they have a great sense of humour about it at that, setting up an official Marmite Facebook Hate Party complete with hilarious, self-deprecating posts which endears the brand to non-lovers as well. For me, of course I belong to the love camp. I have been eating Marmite for two decades, and it is a must-have condiment in my porridge. You will never see my fridge without a bottle. In a recent episode of Nigella Kitchen, Nigella Lawson shared a quick recipe of spaghetti with Marmite which I thought was really clever of her. It has since became my go-to “instant noodles” when I am cooking for myself with almost next to nothing in my fridge.

    I’ve been really curious to try Marmite but it’s kind expensive here so I don’t want to buy a whole jar and then hate it hehe.

    I made this yesterday and my hubby said to his surprise, its actually tasty (he was skeptical at first).

    I notice that after we have finished the pasta, there is butter remaining on my bowls and plates. Is is normal? Is it because I did not mix thoroughly or I put too much butter? (I used 200g instead of 375g of pasta. As for the sauce, I used the same quantity as what you listed above).

      maybe too much pasta water, resulting in residual sauce? the sauce is supposed to cling onto the noodles. But you can experiment with the quantity to suit your liking ;)

    I have never ever tried this..I was always told how awful it was a million years ago. If I find a tiny winny bottle, I will give it a change.

    hi, do you think this can within through the whole morning? Or will the taste go bad easily? Thought of making this for my man’s lunchbox at work.

      Hi sorry I have not tried keeping the pasta for hours. perhaps you can pack the pasta and sauce separately and warm the sauce before tossing with the noodles

    Thank you for this recipe. The marmite with butter creates an interesting cocao taste and the dish goes well with some tomato tuna added in. Will be making it again. Thanks loads.
