If you’re planning on making pasta, make sure you have butter, Parmesan cheese, and garlic to make this simple garlic bread spread (don’t forget the sourdough bread too).
Today, I’m going to keep it short and simple. I make this simple garlic bread spread almost EVERY TIME I make pasta. If I don’t, my kids make a sigh of disappoint or tell me the meal is just now the same without it. Funny, but true.

Simple Garlic Bread Spread
The great thing about this simple garlic bread spread is that it only takes 3-ingredients: garlic, unsalted butter, and grated Parmesan cheese. It’s simple and I think most of us have these ingredients in our pantry. The only thing you may have to buy is the sourdough bread, but if you don’t have it spread this on regular bread to make a bit more special.
Now, something to note. I’ve tried to changing up the recipe and make ‘fancying’ it up, but I always come back to just the base three ingredients: garlic, butter, and Parmesan cheese. Of course, you can always add herbs and spices, but you NEED these three basic ingredients as your base.
After mixing all the ingredients in a bowl, spread onto sourdough bread.
Broil until the spread turns a golden brown.
