Italian bread

Basic bread: yeast, a bit of sugar, some flour in a large bowl; add warm water and stir. Let it foam up, then add more flour, salt, and a little bit of oil. Knead, let rise until double in bulk. Punch down, roll dough out into a rectangle, then roll up tightly into baguettes. Let rise a bit, slice into the tops, sprinkle with kosher salt (a last minute decision, can omit). Bake.
Then we sliced it lengthwise, spread with butter, sprinkle with garlic powder, It. seasoning, and parmesan. Broil.
