This is one of our favorite ways to enjoy a crusty loaf of bread. I heat up the spices with a bit of extra olive oil, instead of water.

Delicious! Will definantly keep it on hand. I used paprika instead of pepper flakes. Nice zip!

Was told it was better than they had in expensive Italian restaurants.

Good recipe. However, we blacken the garlic flakes in the oven and don't bother with blanching (mixing with water to plump). Also, we used cracked black pepper corns and don't use the red pepper flakes.
