My kids just love this. Garlic bread and spaghetti all in that's wonderful.

This recipe is great with left over spaghetti.

loaf Rhodes bread dough or 12 Rhodes dinner rolls, thawed to room temperature (I used the bread )
6 oz
spaghetti, cooked (I used angel hair, as it won't absorb as much sauce) therefore will not dry out while baking
1 c
thick spaghetti sauce
8 oz
shredded mozzarella cheese ( or cubed )
egg, beaten
parsley, dried
garlic salt

1Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray (or use parchment paper).

Roll loaf or combined dinner rolls into a 12x16-inch rectangle. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 10-15 minutes. (I found it easier to roll out; put dough on sprayed baking pan; cover for 15 - 20 minutes. Finish spreading out with greased fingers...then I didn't have to worry how I was going to get filled bread onto baking pan. This worked well for me.)

3I made a quick spaghetti sauce, using ground beef, pepperoni, garlic, red bell pepper, and spices. Try to make sure sauce is thick. I used paste, sauce, and seasonings.

5Place spaghetti lengthwise in a 4-inch strip down the center of dough. I topped with a little more sauce, then added the cheese.

6Make cuts 1 ½-inches apart on long sides of dough to within ½-inch of filling.

7Begin braid by folding top and bottom strips toward filling. Then braid strips left over right, right over left. Finish by pulling last strip over and tucking under braid.

8If doing the braid on your counter; carefully lift the braid onto the sprayed baking sheet.

Brush with egg and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley (I added garlic salt).
