Reviews for Basil-Garlic Cheese Bread
"We loved this! We had enough spread for two meals. We served it the first time with the Hawaiian Chicken recipe found here from Taste of Home (TOH) and then with the Chicken Florentine Meatball recipe also from TOH. Wonderful addition for two meals for us."
"Very good, my grand kids love it."
