Giving A Classic A New Life
I think it’s safe to say that everyone loves spaghetti! But why not spice up this classic? This recipe is a must. It brings the tastes of coffee to traditional Italian sauce. The sweet from the sauce and the bitter from the coffee make a great pair. Try it this weekend with your friends!

2 or 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
