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.

    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.
