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?

    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 ????
