Creamy Three Cheese Garlic Bread Recipe

Garlic bread is by far the best accompaniment to pasta dishes (in my opinion), but sometimes it can get a little boring if you never venture beyond the typical bread, butter and garlic topping. I threw this recipe together out of my own personal desire to spice up our usual and also use up some items I had stored in the fridge. Creamy and delicious, this garlic bread is going to find its way to our table often!

Creamy Three Cheese Garlic Bread Recipe
Recipe type: Side Dish
  • ½ loaf of French bread (store bought or homemade)
  • 10 oz reduced fat Ricotta cheese
  • ⅛ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • ½ cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Slice half a loaf of French bread length-wise in half and place on sheet pan.
  3. In a small bowl combine Ricotta, parmesan, garlic and basil, mix well.
  4. Spread mixture equally over each half of the French bread.
  5. Then top each equally with mozzarella cheese.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes. If cheese does not brown on top, broil on high for an additional 2-3 minutes until cheese begins to brown and bubble!
  7. Serve & enjoy!
  8. Yields 6 servings.
* Double recipe if you are feeding a large family. I only needed to serve 3 people. * Use fresh garlic and basil for additional freshness and flavor! * French bread comes in different flavors, experiment to find your favorite. I used an “everything” French loaf, but would normally make my own garlic & herb loaf if time permitted.
