    I got my recipe from a waitress at Monti's back in the 1980s. Hung on to that forever and somehow lost it. I ate there all the time. Once a month maybe? At least every couple of months. So sad to hear it's no longer there although I always felt the place was haunted or maybe due to claustrophobia from the low ceilings, tight maze like atmosphere. You been there you get it! Really good eating. So so glad I came across this!

    I grew up in Tempe. It's really sad that Monti's is gone. I remember It was like walking through a dark maze. There was even one original adobe wall IIRC. It's the place I always picked for my birthday celebration. I probably ate there at least 20 times. I had the recipe from a newspaper clipping, but lost it over the years. This bread is perfect as an accompaniment to steak.

    Stores I went to didn't have dried Rosemary, so I used fresh. Dough was stickier then I expected, but I'm not a baker. End product was moist and super yummy! Recipe is a keeper!
