Goat Cheese and Marinara with Garlic Bread

This recipe my re-creation of one of my favorite dishes from Cafe Ba Ba Reba in Chicago.  I was inspired to make this because I have leftover goat cheese from the pizza I made on Sunday and leftover sauce from last night.

You will need:
1 1/2 cups Tomato Sauce (homemade or from a jar, any variety)
4 ounces of goat cheese
Fresh Italian or French Bread
2 teaspoons butter
2 cloves peeled garlic

Step 1:
Move an oven rack to the top position in your oven.  Then turn the broiler on.  Then while the oven is heating, pour the sauce into a saucepan and warm over medium heat until it bubbles.

Step 2:
Cut the bread in half vertically.  Spread a thin layer of butter on the bread.  Put the bread on a baking sheet and put it on the top rack of the oven.  Keep a very close eye on the bread, it will only take a minute or two for it to brown.

Step 3:
Remove the bread from the oven once it has browned.  Then rub the garlic on the bread.  The heat from the bread will help the bread absorb the garlic.  Then slice the bread into smaller pieces.

Step 4:
Place the goat cheese in a bowl.  Pour the hot tomato sauce over the goat cheese.  Spread the goat cheese and tomato sauce onto the garlic bread.
