Nigella Lawson and her pasta dish, Marmite, split fans after sharing a recipe on social media
The 61-year-old TV chef is known for polarizing her fans with recipes and kitchen hacks that may not be for everyone.
And now that the big EURO 2020 semi-final between Italy and Spain is only a day away, Nigella’s Italian-inspired recipe has made it again.
What was the recipe for Nigella Lawson’s Marmite pasta?
On Instagram, Nigella showed off a delicious-looking bowl of spaghetti.
There was only one problem – it was only served with marmite, olive oil, butter and the spaghetti boiling water.
Nigella said, “I think a lot of you already know #RecipeOfTheDay, and you might love it or hate it: yes, it’s Marmite Spaghetti.

“So, Buon appetito and enjoy the umami!”
How did the fans react to the recipe?
It didn’t take long for their legions of fans to share their thoughts on the recipe.
At first there was a negative reaction.
One fan said, “No, she must have had too many spritzes. My son, who is Italian, almost died! “

Another simply wrote: “Is that a joke?”

“I do that all the time. Literally the best recipe ever. I definitely use a lot more cheese than suggested, ”said one.
Another fan wrote, “I love this recipe so much! Totally delicious and so pleasantly spicy. Could have it for lunch! “
