What can I say but WOW. Had it with spaghetti and meatballs. Wouldn't change a thing. Very flavorable crusty bread. Thanks for the great recipe. A keeper.

This smelled so good baking and went perfect with the oven-baked Chicken Parmesan that I made for dinner. It'd also rock as a dough to make mini-hoagies for meatball sandwiches.

This bread has a fantastic flavor! I made it to use in grilled cheese sandwiches using Gouda and tomatoes and they turned out fabulous! The herbs in the bread were so flavorful. I only wish my bread machine could make a larger loaf of this! I will be making this again very soon.
