Cheese Garlic Bread

Take out:
Pizza Hut has Cheese Garlic Bread that has 480 calories & 34g fat for 2 slices (14 Weight Watchers points). This is an easy way to transform yourself into Pizza-the-hut (LOL- remember the movie Spaceballs?)

Fake out:
This is such a simple & tasty recipe. Sometimes simplicity helps bring out the flavor. In this case the true garlic flavor which we all love. First slice your bread into 2 slices (1/5 of loaf), then spray with Pam Olive Oil cooking spray, scoop out 2 tablespoons of minced garlic (in water) & spread evenly on bread and lastly sprinkle a tablespoon of grated Parmesan cheese over top before baking in toaster oven for 2-3 minutes or to desired crispiness. Add a pinch of parsley for presentation (optional).
