This garlicky Bruschetta Alfredo makes a great easy appetizer or a special bread to serve with a light dinner. It’s rich and decadent and I could eat the entire loaf all by myself!
This Burschetta Alfredo also makes great finger food for the guys during football season.
You can get a little more creative and add some chopped shrimp or chicken to the sauce or garnish with diced tomatoes and basil ribbons in lieu of the parsley. There’s so many ways to have fun with this bruschetta.
But it really is perfect in every way just as it is!
On another note….
I have a new member to my little family.
Her name is Ellie and she’s 10 months old.
I adopted her a week ago.
We’ve been puppy training
big time bonding
Oh and she’s blind
But you’d never know it
She has the house mapped out and she gets around just fine.
I took my bed off of the bed frame and put pillows all around on the floor so she can get up and down like a pro.
My other two girls sleep with me and I wanted her to be able to as well.
This one is a little angel!
She and Abbey have become the best of friends….they play so well together. Abbey is amazing with her.
I have the best girls ever!!
I know you’ll love this Bruschetta Alfredo!!
