Quick Parmesan Garlic Toasted Flatbread

Quick is a kitchen virtue, especially when you have life conditions such as children or a full time job. Recipes like Quick Parmesan Garlic Toasted Flatbread are indeed virtuous. We love to have toasted garlic bread with meals like spaghetti or lasagna.

One of my favorite games is to take a good thing from the store and make my own copycat recipe. I like to call it CIY: Cook it Yourself. And this was a perfect candidate.
