Spaghetti Braid Recipe
A recipe we have included in our Vegetarian Cookbook is Spaghetti Braid. Turn a simple spaghetti and garlic bread dinner into something fun and easy!
- 1 loaf of bread dough-thawed from your freezer or make your own
- 1 box of spaghetti noodles, cooked
- 1 jar of thick or chunky style spaghetti sauce
- 8 oz vegetarian cheese, cubed, optional
- Vegetarian Parmesan cheese
- Fine corn meal
- Vegetarian butter
- Parsley flakes
- Garlic Powder
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line flat surface with parchment paper and sprinkle with cornmeal, roll your dough out into a large sized rectangle. Let it rest for about 15 minutes on your counter while you cook your spaghetti noodles.
Mix the spaghetti and thick sauce together, and place in the center of the dough in about a 3 1/2 inch strip. Top with cubed vegetarian cheese, if you choose to use it. Make cuts approximately 1 1/2 inches apart along the sides of dough, leaving up to 1/2 inch between slit and spaghetti.
Braid the strips, left over right, in direction consistent with covering the spaghetti and sauce filling. Mix melted vegetarian butter, garlic, parmesan, and parsley.
Brush the spice and butter mixture over the top of the braid. Move the braid on the parchment paper to a baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is lightly browned. Cool, slice and enjoy!
