Marmite pasta

A Nigella Lawson classic, this is a perfect, cheap, tasty mid-week supper. Only if you’re a lover of course!


375g dried pasta
50g unsaltedĀ butter
1 tsp Marmite, to taste (I actually add about five time this!)
Freshly grated parmesan


Cook the spaghetti in plenty of boiling, salted water, according to the packet instructions. When the pasta is almost cooked, melt the butter in a small saucepan and add the Marmite and one tablespoon of the pasta water, mixing thoroughly to dissolve.

Reserve half a cup of the pasta water; then drain the pasta and pour the Marmite mixture over the drained spaghetti, adding a little of the reserved pasta water to amalgamate if required. Serve with plenty of grated parmesan.
