Spaghetti Stuffed Garlic French Bread

Makes 4-5 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 23 oz jar RAGÚ® Homestyle pasta sauce {I used Homestyle Thick and Hearty Mushroom Sauce}
  • 1/2 box {8oz} spaghetti pasta
  • 1 cup Mozzerella cheese shredded
  • 4 oz cream cheese cubed
  • 1 loaf of French bread
  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 2 tbsp parsley finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Add spaghetti noodles and cook according to the package, about 8 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • Add Ragu Homestyle sauce and cubed cream cheese to the pot with the cooked spaghetti and toss to combine and melt cheese.
  • Slice about 2 inches deep through the top of the bread, and continue to cut a large rectangle, being careful not to cut through the bottom of the bread.
  • Remove top of bread and hollow out middle to create a rectangular bread bowl. Place both the cut loaf and the top piece, side by side, on a baking sheet.
  • Spoon spaghetti mixture into prepared French bread and top with shredded mozzarella cheese, 1 tbsp chopped parsley, and 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese.
  • Brush melted butter all over the top of the bread and the sides of the cut loaf.
  • Sprinkle the top loaf with garlic powder, remaining parsley and Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted and slightly golden.
  • Slice spaghetti filled bread and garlic bread loaf into servings and serve together.
