Carrabba’s Bread Dip

Carrabba's Bread Dip

It is impossible to go to Carrabba’s and not overindulge on the bread and olive oil dip.  IMPOSSIBLE!  The herb combination is great.  I have to make myself stop eating bread and oil so I have room for dinner.  I had already planned to make the copycat Pasta Carrabba when the recipe for their bread dip from Mangio de Sola popped up in my Google Reader.  I was SO excited!

This recipe is spot on.  It tasted just like Carrabba’s.  We loved it.  I only made a third of the recipe below and it was enough for 2 or 3 plates.  I saved the extra for this weekend!  YUM!  Now, if I can find a recipe for the Tagliarini Picchi Pacchiu – I would never have to go back!

    Their side of broccoli is also the best broccoli ever.
