Spaghetti Bread!

Have you heard about spaghetti bread? OMG, it's some of the best comfort food ever!

This is what you need:

Pizza dough
8oz of spaghetti cooked and sauced just the way you like it (make it saucier than usual)
8oz shredded mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese
1/2 stick of melted butter with 3 large bulbs of fresh garlic pressed into it

Let's get started:

Cook up your spaghetti and set it aside.

Roll out your pizza dough in a rectangular shape. Roughly 18" x 22". Transfer it on to a greased cookie sheet (It will hang over the edges.)

Spoon your spaghetti noodles in a line in the middle of the dough. Top with shredded mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, and a small drizzle of the garlic butter mixture. Leave at least 4" clear on all sides of spaghetti mound.

With knife or kitchen scissors, cut slits (as shown below) down the long end of the dough roughly every 2-1/2" to 3".

Pull the strips up (stretching them a bit) one at a time from either side to create a braid pattern.

Brush on the remaining garlic butter mixture on the outside.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes (or until golden brown).

Now this recipe is not an exact science. You only have elbow pasta on hand...why not? There is one random Italian sausage in the fridge...cut it up and throw it in. I use whatever I have handy. You get the idea.
