Cheese Bread Recipe

Nothing tastes better with lasagna than warm bread. This recipe makes just enough for my husband, Dan, and me, but it can be easily doubled to feed a crowd. It has a nice garlic flavor.—Cookie Curci-Wright, San Jose, California

"I thought it was great. I will admit though that I didn't buy Italian rolls for this recipe since I already had hot dog buns in the cabinet. I also made another change, something I learned from Rachael Ray. :) I threw the buns in the oven, directly on the rack for a few moments while I worked on the other components of dinner, just enough to get the top crusty. Then instead of mincing the garlic, I rubbed a clove of garlic on the bun. I REALLY was surprised how much garlic was transferred. Mincing garlic holds no thrill for me. :)"
