    And no, this recipe doesn't have any vegemite in it, it's out of a vegetarian cookbook for children, the name is meant to entice aussie kids to eat it..... and yes it works!!!

    Ingredients
    tomatoes, diced
    onions, diced
    green pepper, diced
    few cloves of garlic, crushed

    ********* or *********

    1 lg. jar napoletano sauce

    500g (1lb) spaghetti/pasta
    pizza cheese (combination of tasty, mozarella, parmesan)

    cook all above ingredients, or if using sauce heat up just before spaghetti/pasta is cooked. Add a handful of cheese to sauce mix through.
    Drain pasta, and add to sauce mixture.
    Mix thoroughly.
    Sprinkle with more cheese.
    Grill till cheese is melted.
    Enjoy.

    2 cups of this equals 7 aussie points.

    You know, from what I can remember it is a yeast extract. It's a black pasty substance that aussies use to spread on toast and such. At least the person I knew, that's what he did with it. I gave it an honest effort......no uh-uh!

    You hit the nail on the head about it being yeast extract. And it is most commonly spread on toast or made into vegemite sandwiches.

    Being an expat Aussie - I still make sure that i have my vegemite - its great for breakfast. Only problem is that my DH can't stand the stuff. I have tried to explain to him that it is like peanut butter to americans but he just won't get it.

    I haven't ever tried Vegemite but my local Longs Drugstore carries about half an aisle of British imported food goodies, so I bought a small bottle of Marmite (at nearly $8!) to try.

    All I can say is, it MUST be an acquired taste! :eek: I gave the remainder of it to my DH who in turn gave it to a Brit coworker. He was thrilled!
