I eat pasta… a lot! Italian is definitely my favorite type of food, though if I HAD to choose one. The savory, vibrant, and full-flavored dishes make my mouth water just thinking about them. With so many herbs, different types of cheese, and olive oil how can you go wrong? Plus, all of the dishes pair wonderfully with wine (like really I need a reason to down a bottle of Moscato). Thankfully, I don’t have to choose, so I can just continue to eat whatever I want. Now that THAT is out of the way…

There’s a restaurant near me in Venice called C&O Trattoria, which is famous for their garlic rolls. If you live in the South Bay, you’ve been there. If you haven’t, what the hell are you doing? GO! These things are like crack. Serious. They’re always hot out of the oven, greasy, and loaded with garlic. The best part is that they WON’T stop bringing them to your table either! So, be careful; you may end up gaining 20 pounds, but it will be totally worth it. Anyway, after visiting there one night with some relatives that were in town, I decided to try my hand at re-creating these addicting little morsels so that I could have them whenever I want, without having to go out and get them at a restaurant.

In this easy recipe, I added some parmesan cheese to the rolls… you know, because I love to add the calories in every way possible. I also had a tube of Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits that needed to be used, so I started with that. I’ll be posting another recipe soon once I actually take a little bit more time and make them from scratch. So for now, enjoy these crazy addicting, super easy garlic parmesan knots.

*Interesting fact: each region of Italy shares a love of bread (hello, that’s why we made these easy garlic parmesan knots, right?) and eat it with every meal, EXCEPT for when eating it with pasta. The way restaurants hand it out bread sticks like candy on Halloween, you would think exactly the opposite. I did, at least. The more you know…

Easy Garlic Parmesan Knots Recipe


  • 1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (I used Pillsbury Golden Layers Refrigerated Buttermilk Biscuits)
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese (the Kraft kind in the green bottle is fine)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Roll each biscuit into a rope about 10-12 in. long and tie into a knot, tucking under the ends.
  3. Place about 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet.
  4. Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and brush over the warm knots.
  6. Serve warm.
