The other night I wanted to something to go with a last minute pasta.  I had no bread in the house and thought I would try making an Italian themed biscuit.  My inspiration was the Cheddar bay biscuit from Red Lobster. 

I mixed a little Italian seasoning and a small amount of freshly grated Parmesan into the dry ingredients and finished my recipe.  Instead of cut out biscuits, I made drop biscuits for the rustic appearance.  When they were done baking, I brushed a mixture of melted butter, a little garlic salt,  freshly grated Parmesan, and some parsley on top. 

I will be doing that again, most likely while camping and wanting hot bread to go with pre made pasta.  Terry R.
