Super Delicious Zuppa Toscana and Soft Garlic Breadsticks now? Because somebody forgot to tell Mother Nature that it's Spring and she's behaving as though it's Fall out there with cool, wet weather.
The breadsticks are a cinch to make when I use my Zojirushi Breadmaker. I let the breadmachine do the mixing, kneading, and first rise. Of course, I could also let my KitchenAid Mixer to the work, too.
While the breadsticks are on their first rise I prepare the Zuppa Toscana. Once it's ready for some simmer time, my breadsticks are ready to be rolled out for their second rise. After the second rise and they're in the oven, it's time to prepare a salad (which I didn't do this time) and top it with Italian Dressing.
Ok, so I'll go along with Mother Nature's game plan if it means I get to enjoy a fabulous restaurant style Italian soup, garlic breadsticks, and salad with a zesty Italian dressing.
