Yesterday I made some to add on to the leftover baked vegetable pasta bake from the day before. Now it would have been amazing if I had made the loaf of bread also at home, but I did the next best thing. We have a bakery at 5 mins walk away and I got the freshest, warmest loaf from there in the evening when they roll out their second batch of the day.
