As always, Kitten, delicious. I made this last night to go with our spaghetti supper. By mistake, I mixed the melted butter, garlic, parsley, and parmesan cheese in a dish and let it sit on my counter. By the time I made it, it had hardened a little bit and I was able to spread it on the slices instead of brushing it. Even though it was a mistake, I will do it this way again as I hate to wash the brushes with butter in them. My youngest granddaughter was here and had supper with us and she loved it, too. She had four slices (a lot for a little girl) and my husband and I finished off the rest. This was so easy to make and I like "easy" (smile). Thanks for the recipe, Kitten. Everything of yours that I have made is over 5 stars. By the way, we will be having this again tonight....it was soooo good.
This is so delicious that it's difficult to put down! Wonderful! Thanks, Kittencal! Made in memory of Kitten's husband, John.
Mmmm....delicious.An easy and great tasting recipe.Thanks Kit x.
