Pasta Garage has expanded and has tweaked its menu for the new year, according to executive chef Jake Gaunce.

Pasta Garage, at 962 Delaware Avenue, has added a spinach dip and classic dishes including spaghetti and meatballs and chicken alfredo, and has changed toppings to differentiate between regular and premium toppings.

Gaunce said Pasta Garage also is listing salads and desserts on the menu.

The menu “is a little more extensive now,” Gaunce said. “We’ve gone from a single-fold to tri-fold menu.”
