Stuffed French Bread With Spinach, Herbs And Cheese




2 loaves store-bought French bread (for about 12 servings)
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
1⁄4 cup fresh spinach leaves
(from salad bar), chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1⁄4 cup oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice the loaves in half horizontally and hollow out the bottom half of each loaf. You can reserve the hollowed-out bread for fresh bread crumbs or croutons. In a bowl, mix the parsley, chives, basil, spinach, garlic, oil, salt and cheese. Spread half of the mixture into each of the hollowed-out halves of bread and top with the other halves. Wrap tightly with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Serve warm, sliced on a diagonal. Serves 12.
