The other night we had spaghetti (again!) What’s a better side to pasta than delicious Garlic-Buttered Melted Mozzarella Bread? Not much! A salad is always great but a warm out-of-the-oven piece of garlicky-cheesy bread that you can dip into the sauce is so much better! I got the idea for this recipe from my sister-in-law Maria who makes a fantastic Mozzarella Garlic Bread.Here’s a wonderful and quite simple way to make it!

Garlic-Buttered Melted Mozzarella Bread
1 loaf fresh Italian Bread
2-4 garlic cloves, minced (depending on your preference)
1 stick butter
4 oz mozzarella, sliced

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter in a medium saucepan on medium-high heat. Add the garlic and bubble away for a minute or two. Set aside.

Place the bread on a large piece of aluminum foil and then onto a baking sheet. Slice your loaf of bread down the middle and then cross-slice almost all the way through. Spoon the melted garlic-butter onto the inside of the sliced loaf.

Place the sliced mozzarella between the sliced loaf (lengthwise). Close the aluminum foil up around the loaf and bake in the heated oven 15 minutes.

Remove from the oven and using a sharp knife continue to cut through the sliced loaf until fully separated in pieces. Enjoy!
