Healthy Spaghetti Recipe using 'Old-Soldier' Coffee infused seasoning

By Manolito Bastasa

If you recently purchased our 'Old-Soldier' Coffee infused seasonings & rubs we requested to send us a recipe you used one of the products in and we would get the word out and also send you a free seasoning & 1.5 oz coffee blend of your choice.

Suzy May of Denver sent us her spaghetti recipe and had this to say about it: ' I first sampled one of your seasonings at the 1st Thursday Ladies night at Unlisted Market. I was impressed not only with the flavor of the samples but the fact that the product contained no salt or sugar. My husband and I are working on modifying our diet to reduce the amount of salt and sugar we consume your seasonings are a great start. Here is a photo and my modified spaghetti sauce recipe:


  • 2 lbs ground beef 93%
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • green pepper, finely chopped
  • approx. 5 fresh tomatoes, skin removed & diced
  • 2 (12 oz.) cans tomato paste
  • 1 7.5oz can black olives, drained & sliced
  • 8 oz carton sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 3 cups water
  • 3-4 tbsp. Old-Soldier Spaghetti seasoning
  • 2 tbs. Old-Soldier Beef rub

Cook 7 stir grd. beef, onion, & green pepper & stir in the beef rub cook till meat is brown & onion is tender. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover, simmer 1.5 hrs, stirring sauce occasionally. Serve over whole wheat spaghetti pasta.

The coffee in the seasoning and rub brought out the flavor in the meat and the sauce like I've never tasted. Thanks Old-Soldier for opening our eyes to a new and healthy taste. What we were amazed at is that we followed your suggestion and dropped the salt my original recipe called for. We were a bit hesitant at first but you have won us over!
