This recipe makes 1 loaf
Tomato-basil flavored spaghetti sauce2 cups
Grated Parmesan cheese2 TBSP
Bread Flour*3-4 cups
Active Dry Yeast2+1/4 tsp

*Amount of bread flour will vary with each brand of spaghetti sauce; see directions below.


Bread Machine Method:

Place spaghetti sauce, Parmesan cheese, 3 cups bread flour and yeast in bread pan. Select White or Basic cycle and start machine. Keeping the lid of the machine open, gradually add enough of the additional bread flour until mixture forms a smooth, soft ball. Close lid. When baking is complete, remove bread from machine as soon as possible. Cool on rack. See our Bread Machine section for more helpful tips and information.



You can substitute Instant (fast-rising) yeast for Active Dry Yeast. Traditional methods- replace 1:1. Expect your dough to rise faster; always let your dough rise until ‘ripe’. Bread Machines- use 1/2 tsp Instant yeast (or 3/4 tsp Active Dry yeast) per cup of flour in your recipe.
