Ingredients For spaghetti bread

  • 1
    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 )
  • 1
    egg, beaten
  • sprinkle
    parsley, dried
  • sprinkle
    garlic salt

How To Make spaghetti bread

  • 1
    Spray 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.)
  • 2
    Cook spaghetti according to package instructions. Drain and let cool slightly.
  • 3
    I 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.
  • 4
    Mix the sauce with the cooked and drained spaghetti.
  • 5
    Place spaghetti lengthwise in a 4-inch strip down the center of dough. I topped with a little more sauce, then added the cheese.
  • 6
    Make cuts 1 ½-inches apart on long sides of dough to within ½-inch of filling.
  • 7
    Begin 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.
  • 8
    If 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).

    Bake at 350 for 40 - 45 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly and slice to serve. Delicious!
