Braided Spaghetti Roll
Have I got a simple and easy way to make your spaghetti dinner a little more interesting! I present to you the Braided Spaghetti Roll..
There is only so many times a month you can have pasta, am I right? Well, I decided to switch it up tonight with this great recipe! You take your normal spaghetti recipe, add a little cheese and wrap it up in pizza dough and bake! Woo, easy!!
I bought the store bought pizza dough that you can find with the biscuits and crescent rolls... I made spaghetti for about 1 person (serving size).. and a few handfuls of mozzarella cheese (or as much as you like).
Baked Spaghetti Roll
1 store bought Pizza Dough
1 cup Spaghetti sauce (meat included)
1 cup Mozzarella Cheese
1 Handful of Spaghetti noodles ( enough for 1 serving)
1 egg white
Parmesan Cheese (a few teaspoons to sprinkle on top)
Garlic salt, to taste
Make up your spaghetti as you normally would, and mix all the sauce together with noodles.
Roll out your dough to a full square sheet. This is easiest done on parchment paper for easy transfer to a greased cookie sheet. (I made the mistake of using plastic wrap, ugh, nightmare!)
Turn your spaghetti into the center of the dough. Sprinkle the cheese over the top of the pasta (Don't forget this step as it is really hard to unroll once you have started. Ask me how I know...).
Once your spaghetti is on the dough, cut slits in the dough about 3 inches apart.
Then starting on one side of the roll, gently pull the first cut piece of dough and fold over the pasta. Continue on throughout the loaf intertwining the pieces. Eventually you should be completely covered.
Brush on some egg whites onto the top and sides, sprinkle with some Parmesan cheese and a light dusting of garlic salt. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees.
There you go! Easy as pie, or pizza would be a better analogy! Enjoy!
