Marmite Pasta Again!



Carole's Chatter: Marmite Pasta


Now this pasta dish is so simple that I'm almost embarrassed to tell you about it.  I got the idea from Nigella.

To make Marmite Pasta you just cook your favourite pasta – I used fettucine nests – in well salted water.

When the pasta is almost ready put 3 tablespoons of butter and 1 teaspoon of marmite* (which is a yeast extract) plus a splash of the pasta cooking water into a little saucepan and heat it up to make your pasta sauce.

Serve your marmite pasta with some grated parmesan on top.  And that's it.  It had a lovely but not overpowering flavour. 

* If you aren't familiar with Marmite (or Vegemite which is similar and adored by Australians) then be warned that a little bit goes a long way.  I often add a teaspoonful to beef stews – it adds a real depth of yumminess to the flavour
