Braided spaghetti bread

On some days a bowl of spaghetti with a side if bread just won't do. We gotta dress it up, make it fancy and make it the kind of comfort food you can enjoy wearing a cocktail dress and not just your jammies. For those days we have braided spaghetti bread. Same thing as before, just with a better dress sense.
