Eleven months into quarantine, I am still cooking more than I have ever done in the past. I have been trying to make meals more scrumptious than normal. After-all, food is all the normalcy we have now. And I am happily giving into those needs.
I wanted to make an ordinary spaghetti and meatballs meal fantastic. I made garlic bread to add to the meal. It was easy and really brought the meal to a new level.
What you will need:
- Loaf of Italian bread
- 1 cup of melted butter
- 1 tablespoon Trader Joe’s minced garlic in oil
- 1 large tablespoon of basil
- Freshly grated parmesan cheese (optional)
Pre-heat the oven at 350°.
Cut bread in half, and put it on a cookie sheet. The cookie sheet should either be covered with parchment paper or use non-stick spray.
Combine the melted butter, minced garlic, and basil. Spread the mixture evenly all over the bread.
Place the bread in the oven for 10 mins.
If you desire, sprinkle parmesan cheese all over bread. Put back into the oven for 2-3 minutes under the broiler.
Let bread cool for a few minutes before cutting. Cut the bread up and serve with your meal.
It’s a fantastic, easy and inexpensive way to take your meal to the next level.
