Not too bad. I wanted to wait until I had reheated this as leftovers to share how it fared that way too. It reheats well, hardly any taste difference between the night cooked and the next evening reheated. I doubled this recipe to make two loaves, so the leftovers were intentional. (Cook once, eat twice- you've got to love that) I enjoyed the Italian flavors in this, without them, I believe it would have been way too bland.
