Creamy Marmite Pasta


You didn't read it wrong: marmite! The super famous yeast extract along with those delicious noodles. And it's all the fault of Nigella same.

We already reviewed Marmite years ago. Since then, I've come to like this extract even more. However, I don't consume it as is common in foreign countries. They eat it with toast… personally, I think it's too strong for that.

I see it more as an ingredient to be put in some preparation. Similar to sugar, salt and glutamate, for example. It adds salty and umami tastes, not to mention adding an extra dimension. At least for me.

The first time I saw marmite (or that left a lasting impression on me) was when the Nigella made one spaghetti with marmite in one of your programs. Who doesn't remember? That's when the desire to try the product began.

despite marmite at home thanks to the loved ones who gave me a gift (read: It's not available in Brazil, okay girls?), I remembered that I hadn't posted my version of this pasta with marmite yet.

The touch of creaminess comes from peanut butter which I like a lot. It's generally used by fitness people… but we use it to make really delicious food. And yes, you can taste peanuts.
