These are wonderful, make ahead and freeze, great for when unexpected company drops in. Make a spaghetti dinner. The company doesn't need to know you were ready for them.

GREAT!!!! they took a bit of work, but i love the fact that they are there in the freezer and ready to go when you need 'em. AND the hubbie actually will eat them! (super-picky eater, but thinks no meal is complete w/o bread!) Thanks for sharing!
