Butter Herb Breadsticks just like a Fabulous Restaurant’s Breadsticks Recipe
Are you a fan of a certain Italian restaurant? Personally, I can’t get enough of the lunch soup and salad–in fact, I love it so much that I make my favorites at home on a pretty regular basis. My favorite is Copycat Zuppa Toscana Soup Recipe and while it’s not the same salad, I absolutely love this Italian Chopped Salad–hello, just add the restaurant’s Salad Dressing and you’re good to go!
Pair it up with some delicious Hazelnut Cheesecake Layered Dessert, and you’ve got a meal ready to go.
