Quick Spaghetti with Cheesy Garlic Bread


When I was a kid I couldn't stand spaghetti. For some reason red sauce on noodles just really creeped me out. Every time my mom would make it, she would serve me buttered noodles instead. Somewhere around 11 years old, my taste buds changed and I started to like spaghetti.

One day I want to make it with a real homemade sauce where I boil down the tomatoes for an entire day, but we haven't made it there just yet. Sometimes instead of using a jar, I'll mix together tomato sauce and paste and add in garlic and other seasonings to make my own.

Cheesy Garlic Bread
Preheat the oven to 350. Cut a loaf of Italian bread into even slices and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil on each slice of bread and use a brush to spread around. Sprinkle garlic powder, Italian seasonings, salt and pepper over the bread. Add a pinch of mozzarella cheese to each slice. Bake for 5-7 minutes or until the bread is crispy and the cheese has melted.
