Sample portion of pasta's terrible (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

taster

Here is my best explanation:

'sample' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'portion of pasta's terrible' is the subsidiary indication.

'portion of' says the answer is hidden in the clue.

'taster' is hidden in the letters of 'pastas terrible'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for taster that I've seen before include "Food tester", "Quality assurance worker", "One trying", "Art set (anag.)", "She samples", "A professional savourer, of wine or tea", "person in charge of testing", "extract", "Sampler of food" and "Winery worker".)
