Spaghetti Bread

Every Monday during "Bachelor" seasons, my girlfriends and I get together for the show, dinner, and wine! It was Megan's turn to host.  She couldn't decide what to make.  I had recently pinned a Spaghetti Bread, so she decided to give it a try with her own twist.

  • 1 Loaf Rhodes Bread Dough, thawed to room temperature (this takes 2-3 hours, plan ahead!)
  • 6 oz spaghetti, cooked
  • 1 cup Ragu thick & chunky spaghetti sauce
  • 12 oz. Italian sausage
  • 8 oz mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2 –inch cubes or shredded
  • olive oil
  • Italian Seasoning
Roll loaf into a 12x16-inch rectangle, on parchment paper. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest 10-15 minutes. Brown Italian sausage, and drain. Add cooked Italian sausage to spaghetti sauce. Cook spaghetti according to package instructions. Drain and let cool slightly. Remove wrap from dough. Mix spaghetti, sauce, and cooked Italian sausage together. Place on the center of the dough. Add cheese cubes, or shredded cheese. Make cuts 1 1/2-inches apart on long sides of dough. Begin braid by folding top and bottom strips toward filling. Then braid strips left over right, right over left (see photos).  Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Bake at 350°F 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly and slice to serve.
