There are numerous breads you can use to soak up your spaghetti and while the first bread that comes to mind is usually garlic bread, it’s time to introduce your palette to some other options. What you really need to consider is what bread works best with your sauce.
Simple breads complement rich spaghetti sauce perfectly because they don’t overpower the bold flavor of the sauce. Opt for breads such as potato rolls, wheat rolls, or sourdough bread. French bread or Italian bread with a crunchy crust adds some texture to your dish as well.
Sweet flavored breads enhance the sweetness of the tomatoes found in traditional spaghetti sauce so we recommend trying a honey wheat bread. Whether you have a simple spaghetti sauce or a spicy sauce, a sweet basil bread will reiterate the sweetness from the tomatoes.
Spicy breads can be incorporated into any spaghetti dish, especially those which include a garlic sauce or sun-dried tomatoes. Black pepper rolls are ideal for a sweet spaghetti sauce with rosemary.
Savory breads are ideal with pasta dishes and if you want a hint of spice, coat your bread in garlic. For cheese lovers, sprinkle Parmesan or mozzarella cheese onto the bride slices prior to putting in the oven. If you’re seeking an herbal flavor, coat the bread with basil, oil or pine nuts. Sourdough is another popular option that can be easily covered in sun-dried tomato paste or a delicious roasted garlic paste.
