Does any one else's husband make a sandwich out of their spaghetti and garlic bread EVERY time you have a pasta dinner!? Mine does! So when I saw this recipe, I knew it was right up his alley!
I had this on the menu for the week and immediately had a few people emailing me wondering about it! I first found it on pinterest, and had been really excited to try it! It was a hit! We all (including my 1 year old) loved it!
Bread Dough (I used this recipe and just used 1/2 the dough and froze the rest, and it still made a ton!)
1/2 box of thin spaghetti
1/2 jar of Spaghetti Sauce (plus more for dipping)
1-2 cups crumbled italian sausage-cooked (optional)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
garlic bread seasoning
Ok, so this is more of a dinner idea than an actual recipe, because you can use whatever bread recipe you want, and however much spaghetti you need. But this is how I did it....
Prepare your bread dough in your breadmaker (or by hand). Once your Dough is done, separate into halves and freeze one half (or make bread) Boil your spaghetti noodles according to package directions and drain. Mix your spaghetti noodles, sauce and sausage together.
Roll out your dough into a large rectangle. Place your spaghetti mixture in a strip down the middle of the dough, leaving room at the ends and top with the cheese. With a knife, cut the sides of the dough into 1 inch strips, starting at the sides of the spaghetti and working out. Then proceed to braid the dough up over the spaghetti, tucking the ends under the braid.
Brush the dough with the egg, and sprinkle with the garlic seasoning and parmesan cheese.
Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until the top is browned. Personally I would of baked mine a little longer, but my husband was in charge of taking it out while I ran to the store for lettuce, and he likes things a little less done! :)
Allow to cool for a few minutes and slice into portions. Serve with warmed pizza sauce for dipping.
We will definitely be having this again, many times in the future! It looks SO pretty and it tastes even better!
