Adventures in cooking: Baked goat cheese in marinara with a garlic french baguette
For the toasted bread we cut a french baguette in half, painted on a melted mixture of butter and minced garlic and then baked it at 350 for 20 mins.
For the baked goat cheese we just poured in a can of marinara, plopped the goat cheese on top, sprinkled with a mix of pepper and oregano and baked it at 400 for 15 mins. Easiest recipe ever! I would try it with pesto, too.
