Garlic Ciabatta Bread

Wow! This is the best garlic bread I have ever had! The garlic-olive oil mixture reminds me a lot of Carrabba’s Italian Bread they serve at the table. The oregano, parsley, and garlic are so fragrant with the combination of the tasty and rich olive oil. I must warn you though…you’ll have garlic breath for the rest of the evening! haha 🙂 Enjoy! This is a crowd pleaser!
