This recipe is for the true garlic lover out there. I got this very simple but super flavorful recipe from our favorite Italian restaurant while living in Redondo Beach in So Cal. There was always a waiting line whether it was for take out or dine in. It has become a favorite and mandatory request from family and friends at all gatherings and the only garlic bread I am allowed to make. This makes a great base for an unbelievably delicious bruschetta or topped with a meaty marinara sauce for dinner the next night or even tonight.
