Marmite is something you either love or hate. For me, of course I belong to the love camp. I even enjoy a marmite drink by simply dissolving marmite in hot water (better than essence of chicken!), and it is a must-have condiment in my porridge since my childhood days. And ever since I discovered marmite spaghetti from watching Nigella’s Kitchen, marmite now has a new purpose: it has become the key ingredient in my favourite to-go “marmite instant noodles”.

Dress it up a little with some grated parmesan cheese and chopped parsley, and this quickie pasta dish even looks gourmet. This recipe is a god-sent when there is next to nothing in the fridge, and I want to whip up something quick but more wholesome than instant noodles.
