Spaghetti Bread

You're sure to love the heavenly aroma and pleasant herb flavor of this tender bread from Lois Gelzer of Standish, Maine. "It's great with spaghetti and meatballs or most any Italian pasta dish," she suggests.

    Chose medium crust color, came out crispy on the edges with cheesy crunchiness. Would choose light next time. Inside was nice & soft, lots of herby flavor, would use the full 2 tsp of garlic powder next time. Buttered hot or toasted, yum. Just smelling it bake in the bread machine was heaven. The order of the ingredients is perfect, will make this again.
