I went to the fridge to get my fresh basil and it was gone. Which means one of my guys used it up on something. Ugh!

So on to Plan B, dried basil it was. The flavor was just as good, I just prefer to use fresh basil. But feel free to use either one, just be sure to use less if you use dried basil. The recipe below gives you the details.

This is brand of Naan I used. I picked these up at Target during one of my recent shopping trips. I’m sure any brand would work fine. The flatbreads come two to a pack. You can use just one kind or one of each, like I did. Both were wonderful!

The garlic Naans are also wonderful, without being to garlicky.

Keep in mind if you use one of each, you will have to make this recipe again very soon to use the remaining Naans. :)

Can’t wait to make my new favorite Garlic-Cheese Flatbread with spaghetti!

Pizza sauce with a little bit of fresh chopped basil or parsley is just perfect for dipping!
