    Homemade pasta twiglets?

    Anyone tried these?
    My consultant said get the twisty pasta and then cook for 5 mins and then coat in marmite and put in oven and keep turning. Apparently taste just like twiglets? X

    Sorry but that's screaming food abuse at me - the same way as with lasagne crisps - and the word from SW HQ is that they need to be synned

    In Nigella's last series she cooked a simple dish of just boiled pasta and with marmite stirred in. If you love marmite you will love her dish.

    I tried making "twiglets" with my HEB ryvitas soaked in hot water and wizzed up with 10g butter and a dollop of marmite - I baked them for 15 mins.

    Taste was good but they weren't crispy enough - so might try less water and cooking for longer another time.

    I can't buy twiglets here...which is a good thing as I love 'em

    unfortunately some consultants are not sticking to the rules as defined by slimming world head office.

    consultants really need to be assessed far more often.
