  • Summary

    Soft, pillowy bread stuffed with melty mozzarella and dipped in a marinara sauce makes for an easy, crowd-pleasing appetizer or side dish. Here, store-bought sauce is doctored up with a few pantry staples, including dried oregano, garlic and red-pepper flakes, but you can use homemade sauce, too. Slice the bread or let everyone tear off pieces, like they would a fresh baguette, for a more spontaneous, cheese-pull moment. To round out the spread with something green, roast broccolini, broccoli or kale on a sheet pan in the oven as the bread cooks, then dip alongside. For a crunchier exterior, unwrap the bread and cook uncovered for the last 5 minutes. 

    Ingredients

    • 1 Italian loaf or rustic baguette
    • 5 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1/2 pound mozzarella, thinly sliced
    • Kosher salt and black pepper
    • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano 
    • 2 large garlic cloves, grated or minced
    • 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
    • 1 3/4 cups marinara sauce
    • 1/2 teaspoon sherry vinegar (optional)
    • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
