Asiago Topped Garlic Bread

(originally made 4/2010)

Normally my go-to side dish for pasta is storebought Texas Toast.   Had marked this recipe in Cooking Light Fresh Food Fast, and since I had part of a loaf of Italian bread on hand, thought I'd give it a try.     The vinaigrette underneath the cheese gives the bread an interesting twist over using butter, one that I really enjoyed.    I liked the rosemary, and would be equally as likely to grab some Penzey's Italian Herb mix when I make it again.   I think this would also make a nice French bread pizza if some crushed tomatoes or sauce were added.     :)
