I tend to cook a lot of pasta, but more recently I’ve mostly cooked spaghetti as seems my toddler survives off it.

So coming up with different lunches and dinners has been a little challenging. I vaguely remembered seeing someone cook Marmite spaghetti on the TV and wondered if it would also work with Bovril. I can confirm, it’s waaaaay better!

  1. We had this today at lunch time, with a salad, and it was lovely. A quick, tasty alternative to sandwiches. Thank you Pinch of Nom.

  2. I don’t quite understand this recipe. Is there any liquid in the saucepan with the Bovril or am I trying Bovril Powder? What do I do with the pasta and Bovril Powder after returning it to the pan?

    1. Hi there,

      When you put the Bovril into the frying pan, it will naturally melt and become looser. You can then easily stir in the pasta 😊
