Marmite Spaghetti (Nigella Lawson’s Recipe)

Check Out: Pesto Pasta Recipe

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.

    Mmm…this sounds delicious and healthy with Marmite. Would like to make this for my hubby because he loves Marmite :)

    I remember I used to eat Bovril more often than Marmite. Long forgotten taste for me….

    Truer words were never spoken – MARMITE is indeed something one either hates/loves. Fortunately I belong to the latter category, so this dish is both simple, wholesome and right up my alley! :)

    Kinda reminds me of my student days, when I’d substitute the packet of seasoning for some Marmite when cooking instant noodles (the dry, non-soupy variety).

    Is there anything I need to note with I use normal butter?

      you mean salted butter? It should be fine, you may need slightly less marmite to season the noodles if using salted butter

    Hi, I am so happy I have discovered your website! Your recipes look very inspiring and the marmite pasta is definitely the dish I have to make. In Switzerland we have something very similar, a bit lighter in taste, called “cenovis” and I couldn’t really say which one I prefer. It would be interesting to compare cenovis pasta with marmite pasta one day :-)


    • wiffy replied: — May 20th, 2011 @ 11:31 am

      I have to research about cenovis pasta one day, sounds interesting and delicious. This isn’t my recipe though, I learn this from Nigella Kitchen (TV show) :)

    Believe it or not, I have never tasted marmite! Is it the same as Bovril? I might give this a go!


    • wiffy replied: — May 20th, 2011 @ 11:32 am

      how could you! marmite is cheap in UK ;) hehe just kidding. I think it’s the same type of food, taste similar to Bovril but not the same (they have different formulas and ingredients)

    So glad you’ve shared this recipe. I have not had marmite for the longest time and can’t wait to relive the flavours!
