Italian Cheese and Parsley Bread

Fresh baked bread is the perfect accompaniment to a bowl of homemade soup, stew or chili. Sometimes, though, there is just not enough time to make bread at home. Using yeast, and the dough rise, can take a while. So, this ‘no-yeast’ bread recipe is the perfect solution for a time crunched day. Baking soda is used instead and the bread rises just fine. Fresh parsley, mozzarella and Parmesan go really well together in this bread and give it a nice Italian flavor.
