Italian Parmesan Bread

I love to bake bread! This is a fun bread to make, there is no trouble with shaping the dough, it just goes into the casserole dish. I got this recipe from a friend, it goes perfectly with any Italian meal! I've used grated Parmesan instead of the shredded, the bread is different, but still awesome! -Sarah

1 cup warm water (130 degrees)
3 cups flour
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 egg, beaten (room temperature)
2 T. sugar

1/2 t. garlic salt
