- 375 grams spaghetti
- 50 grams unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon Marmite (or more to taste)
- freshly grated Parmesan cheese (to serve)
- 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.
For vegetarians replace the Parmesan cheese with a vegetarian alternative.
