Ingredients for 8 people

  • 1 box Barilla® Collezione Spaghetti
  • 2 garlic cloves, gently pressed
  • 1 red hot finger pepper, thinly sliced
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound ground lamb

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 425° F.  In a small bowl soak bread in water then squeeze out the excess.
