The perfect garlic bread. Serve this before a hearty bowl of spaghetti for a true Italian-America experience.
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) lightly salted butter, room temperature

1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup finely grated parmesan
1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
2. Stir together the butter, garlic, parsley and pepper until well combined.
3. Cut the baguette in half horizontally and spread each cut side with the garlic butter, being sure to use every last bit.
