We had spaghetti last night for dinner and I was looking for a different take on garlic bread to serve alongside it. I have seen this recipe on various websites, but this one looked the easiest to me. It had great garlic flavor, and the rolls were soft to bite into. I would probably double the recipe if I was having company over, it only makes 5 rolls. However, it was the perfect amount for us. I would definitely make this again in the future. For a recipe using yeast it was quite simple and turned out great!
