I was making spaghetti tonight. And I didn't make my own pasta.
I know, I'm slacking.
In my defense, I think I'm getting a cold. And I haven't slept well for a couple nights...
To atone for not making my own pasta, I decided to make garlic knots to go with them.
Shhhhh. I bought the pizza dough. At least it's whole wheat.
Super fun and super easy - and they look impressive. You could use any variety of herbs to make them suitable for lots of meals. That's a winner in my book.
So try them. With store bought dough or your own, they are wonderful!
Pizza Dough (homemade or store-bought - your favorite. I used whole wheat store bought tonight)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Roll the dough out into a rectangle.
Spread olive oil onto surface evenly. Sprinkle with garlic powder and cheese.
Slice into strips about 1/2 inch wide (I used a pizza cutter to get even slices).
Tie each strip into a knot and place on a cookie sheet.
Spray with butter flavored cooking spray or brush with butter lightly, and then bake for 12 minutes.
