Family dinner is one of our favorite times of the day. Now that the weather has cooled considerably, I’m cranking up the oven more than I do in the summer. Instead of sandwiches and pasta salad, we’re enjoying warm meals that are hearty and fill the house with delicious smells. My kids love pasta, and we have a bit more of it during the cooler months. Pasta is also one of my go-to meals for taking a meal to a friend who may need a hot meal or an easy meal when we are entertaining a crowd. The combo of pasta sauce and noodles are always a crowd pleaser, whether it is immediate family or extended friends! Paired with my easy Cheesy Bread Recipe, baked ziti is a tasty dinner.
Pasta pairs well with bread or salad, but it especially goes great with this Cheesy Bread recipe!
Cheesy Bread Recipe Ingredients:
- (1/4) cup unsalted butter
- (6) ounces Italian blend shredded cheese
- (1/4) teaspoon garlic powder
- Pink Himalayan sea salt
- Thinly sliced Parisian bread pieces (between a fourth and a half of an inch)
I found already sliced bread in the store. I like this specific bread because it is thinly sliced and doesn’t get too tough when broiled. My kids like softer cheesy bread.
Soften the butter, but not to the point of being melted.
Add the garlic powder to the butter. Add a few turns of the Pink Himalayan sea salt to the butter, as well. Combine the mixture to make a spread.
Place the bread slices on an aluminum covered pan.
Spread the mixture on each bread piece.
Continue until all pieces are covered.
Place the pan in the oven on broil. Broil until the cheese is melted and slightly golden brown on edges. Keep a close eye while it is cooking, as the cheese tends to go from non-melted to melted very quickly!
Pair with your favorite pasta meal.

That cheesy bread sounds awesome. I grew up in a big Italian family, so bread with every meal was a MUST.
That is a carb filled comfort food to the max. Family would enjoy this meal

I usually don’t add bread to my evening meal but this cheesy bread looks like it goes with anything. These Italian style meals do look like they are great for a new change.

This dish looks so delicious. I love the pizza and pasta flavors together and the cheesy bread you made looks to-die-for.
Cheesy bread is a favorite in my home. This would be perfect to make for my family for dinner tonight.
Oh yum! This looks like a really good meal and still seems like it is not too difficult of a meal to make so it will work with a hectic evening too. Cheesy bread is the best!

Shoshana Sue says
Your cheesy bread looks so delicious and I can imagine how wonderful it went down with the pasta. I would love to try the chicken bruschetta though coz pasta is not something I eat
Everyone in my family loves pasta. These baked ziti are so perfect for them. Need to make this soon!
Ohh, these all look so good! We love their eggplant parm and lasagna, but I had no idea there were so many other pasta dishes. This is awesome for busy nights!

We actually used to have a group of young people that rode in the back of the church van. They would snack on cheesy bread on the way home. They still talk about it to this day and they are all adults now. Cheesy bread for the win!
