Lasagna’s Partner In Crime: Oven Roasted Garlic Bread

Lasagna night isn’t complete until garlic bread makes an appearance.  This simple and delicious recipe is perfect for Italian night.  My toddler and I put this together before we started making the lasagna components. (Link to Lasagna Recipe)  I simply wrapped it in foil and placed it in the fridge until the lasagna was out of the oven and cooling slightly.  Customized with shredded mozzarella and fresh parsley.  Enjoy!
