Pasta and Garlic Bread……..where can you go wrong? It’s like the greatest combination of two foods in one meal since……..since…….EVER!
I don’t know if I was just craving carbs all shift or what, but nothing else sounded any better than a heaping plate of pasta with a side of garlic bread.
But not just any pasta, oh no! I’m talking about a steaming hot pile of penne pasta, smothered in a large helping of marinara sauce. Super simple, super easy, and super quick.
But to top it off, you have to have meatballs with your pasta as well. And with meatballs, it depends on how you like to serve them. You could put them in with the pasta whole; but I’ve also heard of some people chopping/crumbling them up and mixing them in. Whichever you prefer is your prerogative.
To wrap it all up, garlic bread is a MUST with pasta. But it can’t just be a normal slice of bread that you get for peanut butter and jelly; it has to be a good bread. It needs to be one of those warm loafs of bread from the bakery, like a sourdough or a baguette. Any other kind would just be a waste of time.
Overall, carbs will never let you down. You could be having just the shittiest of days, but a bowl of pasta and garlic bread has the power to pick you right back up. And you better believe it, it will pick my ass up when I am home.
Do you agree with my meal of choice? Or do you like your pasta and garlic bread served a different way? Let me know in the comments below, or on one of The Midwestern Barfly Gazette’s various social media accounts;
