Gorgonzola Garlic Bread

When I set out to make a pasta feast for MR. TL and I on Saturday evening, I knew it had to involve some delicious bread to sop up the leftover sauce from the pasta! I snagged a noce round of sourdough bread from Whole Foods and thought we'd be content with just that, as is... that is untilI spotted a recipe for Gorgonzola Garlic Bread on my new favorite site, Pintrest. The recipe looked easy enough but still swanky enough to impress Mr. TL with my kitchen prowess.

The result - a delicious hunk of bread with lots of snappy garlic flavor and just the right kick of gorgonzola. I paired it with a balsamic pasta so the sweetness of that helped offset the punch of Gorgonzola flavor. Enjoy!

Gorgonzola Garlic Bread
(adapted from Thibeault's Table)

1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup Gorgonzola cheese
1 clove garlic, finely chopped

Cream the butter with the Gorgonzola cheese.
Add garlic to cheese mix.
Season with salt and pepper.
Leave loaf whole, but cut slices so that the loaf stays together. Spread cheese mixture in between each slice and reshape loaf.
Wrap loaf in foil.
Place in 400°F oven for 15 - 20 minutes and serve hot.
