# For future ref, if you're good at making chilli or bolognese sauce
a good variation for feeding lots of mates easily and cheaply, and without having to worry about the faff of serving spaghetti or rice, is to buy a couple of french sticks; slice lengthways, cut into pieces, coat with the sauce (both bolog and chilli is great for this), sprinkle with grated cheese, bang in the oven for 20 minutes.

# It's a winner at all my parties...
plus, the advantage is, you can make it ahead of time, and leave it to cool, before popping it in the oven in the evening. It actually tastes better if the sauce has had a chance to soak into the bread for a fwe hours... minmum hassle! Pukka! ;)

# Around 170-180 will do the trick (mine's a fan oven though, so maybe a tad bit hotter, if your's isn't)
Should be about 20 minutes, although look for the cheese browning, (i.e. don't let it) as that's the sign of when it's done.

# Serve it with...? Beer, mostly! :)
Usually I just go for a buffet type affair, so some spicey potato wedges, sour cream, maybe some dips and kettle chips. It's more snack food, that a sit-down meal I suupose. Anyone else got any ideas?

Edit: and while I remember, rather obviously, it works just as well with a tomato sauce with onion, peppers, sweetcorn, chickpeas, etc. for a vegetarian option.
