Here's the truth: I never had Marmite. Not until this afternoon. People say and even its adverts say it's a 'love it' or 'hate it' kinda thing. And I don't like not liking things.
This recipe is featured in Nigella Lawson's new book "Kitchen" and there are so many recipes I want to try and I'll start here, I guess. Are you sensing a new Nigella project?! Well, maybe...
There are only four ingredients in this dish, spaghetti, butter, marmite and parmesan cheese; and a little bit of the pasta cooking water to loosen the sauce.
And my verdict on Spaghetti with Marmite: it's delicious. I'm not sure how to describe the taste of marmite. It's salty, savoury, like beef stock cube or concentrated gravy. I think it's still too early for me to join 'I love Marmite fan club' but I certainly do not hate it.
Have a great weekend.
