Recipe Notes

*Most grocers will carry garlic toasts pre-made, but you can easily make your own by cutting a French baguette into 1/2 inch slices, baste with a light extra virgin olive oil mixture, blended with 2 garlic cloves and a teaspoon of dried parsley. Bake at 350 until crunchy, approximately 10-15 minutes. Watch closely to prevent burning.
