Reviews for Basil Garlic Bread
"I used dried parsley and basil because it's what I had on hand. Very fast dish to put together and everyone loved it. Leftovers froze and reheated great!"
"This was pretty good, but I did think it could use some more flavor. Next time I would increase the basil and maybe add some onion salt. The parsley doesn't add a lot to the taste although it makes the bread look wonderful to serve."
