An incredibly easy and very tasty dish. If you don't like marmite, don't worry, it honestly does not taste of marmite 😂 It's just very savory plus it looks 10x fancier than it actually is so its an all-round winner.
Dried spaghetti, 125grams per person
2 tsp of Marmite (or more)
A good knob of butter
Parmesan, a handful per person
Black pepper + white pepper, if you have it
Bring a big pan of salted water to the boil + the add your spaghetti. Do not salt the water too generously as you're going to need a lot of it for the sauce.
In a separate pan, melt butter with a little of the pasta water.
Add a teaspoon of marmite per person, and mix through.
Add your cooked spaghetti, and toss through the sauce until it's fully coated.
If it looks a little dry, add some more pasta water.
Give it a taste, if you want more marmite (we usually do) add a little more.
Add _lots_ of black pepper. The more the merrier. If you have white pepper to hand, add a little of that too, but it's not vital.
Just before serving, add the parmesan, and stir through pasta.
Serve! and add a little more parmesan on top.
