Spaghetti With Marmite

Spaghetti With Marmite

Ignore the first impression and give this a try!

The savoury, salty flavour of marmite combines well with the pasta for a rich and flavourful combination. For a little more substance try adding a little minced beef into the mix.

Of course with this dish though, people will love it or hate it, there is no middle ground with marmite!


Cooking Method


  • 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 1 tablespoon of the pasta water, mixing thoroughly to dissolve.
  • Reserve ½ cup of pasta water; then drain the pasta and pour the Marmite/Vegemite mixture over the drained spaghetti, adding a little reserved pasta water to amalgamate if required.
  • Serve with plenty of grated Parmesan cheese.
