This is what I do with day old bread that was reduced in price by 3/4 because it was made the day before. That's how I do it it these days.  I got this large prepared garlic bread for 59 cents at the local market.  Regularly $1.99.  Not bad right?  Especially if it could feed a family of 4 for about $2.00.  I had some left-over spaghetti sauce (maybe 20 cents worth).  So I will proceed.

  • One garlic bread (split in half lenth-wise)
  • Parsley flakes 2 tablespoons (fresh if desired)
  • Spaghetti sauce 1/2 cup (or sliced tomatoes)
  • Dried parmesan cheese (mozzarella is fine)
  • Oregano (a pinch of dried crushed between your fingers on each half of bread) 
  • Add your favorite topping like mushrooms, sliced tomatoes, etc or meat.
Preheat oven 400

Scrape most of the butter off if there is an excess.
Sprinkle one tablespoon parsley on each half spreading on butter evenly.
Add Spaghetti sauce spreading evenly and carefully not to disturb the parsley.
Add cheese, again spreading evenly
Top with any of your favorite toppings.

Bake for 10 minutes.  Wait a couple of minutes before slicing.  So tasty, so easy and so cheap.  I got the pepperoni at the dollar store and only used 1/3 of it.   So bottom line this cost no more that $2.00 and would definitely serve 4.  This would go great served with  minestrone soup, or Italian salad. 

Enjoy and many blessings
