Marmite Spaghetti

First posted in May 2011, updated in May 2017.

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.

It takes 10 minutes to make this dish if I’m using spaghetti. If you want even quicker, use quick-cooking angel hair which takes only about 2 minutes of cooking time.
