Spaghetti and meatballs are great, but hands down the best part of any Italian meal is the garlic bread. This version, affectionally dubbed "OMG Garlic Bread," has lemon zest, fresh basil, and Parmesan. It's probably the best garlic bread you'll ever make.
The heart and soul of this recipe is the chunky garlic paste, which calls for a whole head of garlic, a whole stick of butter, Parmesan, fresh basil, lemon zest, and red pepper flakes.
You slather that paste on thick slices of toasted artisan bread (the author uses a rosemary-Parmesan bread, which sounds delicious), and then place the bread under the broiler until everything is golden-brown and fragrant with that heavenly garlic-butter smell.
One bite of this garlic bread and you'll never go back to your boring ol' standby recipe again.
