i was craving carbs so tonight’s dinner was very simple. i made a quick plum tomato sauce with some pasta, salad and a garlic bread smothered in my favorite olive oil and herb dip.

a while back i was walking through stew leonard’s and spotted this bread dip. i looked at it and then put it back down, i got distracted by a screaming child. when i got home i realized i never put it in my cart. i was very sad but i knew it had to be fairly simple to re-create

it’s really simple actually. some olive oil, basil, fresh garlic and cheese.  it’s great just as is, a dip. serve with fresh baked bread or you can take it a little further and spoon some of that oil on a fresh baguette, heat it up, and make garlic bread. my favorite is actually putting it over pasta with grilled shrimp. i can’t begin to explain to you how good it is.
