Ciabatta Garlic Bread

Once you make this you won't use store made buy & bake ones! I have to admit I made a meal out of it last night it was so darn good.

1 loaf of ciabatta bread, sliced lengthwise
1 stick of butter, softened
1 tsp. garlic salt, more or less to taste
2 tsp. parsley flakes
2 tsp. dried oregano flakes

Heat oven to 375. In a small bowl combine butter, garlic salt, parsley and oregano. Smear onto open bread with a spatula and bake 12-15 min. or until golden brown. Slice into pieces and serve warm.

This would be ideal with a good soup and salad or your favorite pasta dish. I would like to try it as a sandwich with mozzarella, tomato and fresh basil. (Wish I saved some for leftovers!!)
