Waiting for the loaves to double in size

This Italian bread is made using two doughs. The mixing and first rising are done in a Panasonic breadmaker. The second rising and baking are not. Start the day before you want to eat the bread.

This recipe is basically the same recipe as parmesan ciabatta, but without the cheese!
