15-minute Garlic Bread

Nothing goes better with a bowl of pasta quite like garlic bread.

Okay, so maybe wine. BUT still garlic bread.

 I don’t know a single soul who doesn’t love biting into a slice of garlicky heaven. That crisp toasty bottom with a soft buttery top. It’s one of the most perfect foods. Plus it’s bread and bread is the absolute best. Sometimes we dip garlic bread in pizza sauce for a snack. And sometimes we forgo utensils altogether and just use garlic bread as a vehicle to get the pasta into our faces. Basically there’s no wrong way to eat it.

And while frozen store-bought garlic bread is a smidgen easier, it’s not nearly as delicious. Promise.
