    Great side to pasta, love the parmesan in the topping.

    This was tasty and easy to make. For personal preference, I will probably use Italian seasoning instead of basil in the future.

    We generally have some kind of garlic bread a couple of times a week. We will definitely be incorporating this in our repertoire. LOVED IT!!! Easy and DELICIOUS! We did use the same trick we use whenever we put the bread under broil; we wrap the edges with tin foil since they tend to burn before the rest of it is cooked. Works like a charm every time.

    My family loved this bread, and it was very easy to make. Will definately make many more times.
