No side bread? Yep, that’s a problem. These dinners look a little bare until paired with a doughy partner. MORE+ LESS-

Quick Creamy Parmesan Chicken Penne

Quick Creamy Parmesan Chicken Penne + Garlic-Parmesan Pull-Apart Bread

To do Italian night right, you need a thick slice of warm and chewy Garlic-Parmesan Pull-Apart Bread alongside your mamma-mia main, like this creamy chicken pasta.


Slow-Cooker Lasagna

Slow-Cooker Lasagna + Italian Parmesan Bread

Lasagna and crusty bread are a no-fail combo. The partnership works even better here because the main dish is prepared in a slow cooker, leaving your oven free for the couldn’t-be-easier Italian Parmesan Bread


Caramelized Garlic Chicken

Caramelized Garlic Chicken + Easy Tomato Bruschetta

How do you make a simple chicken dinner really pop? Add a super flavorful side bread; six-ingredient Easy Tomato Bruschetta bites are just right.


Easy Weeknight Creamy Chicken Alfredo

Easy Weeknight Creamy Chicken Alfredo + Cheesy Rosemary Monkey Bread Rolls

It’s an unspoken yet undeniable rule: Where there’s pasta, there should be bread. Pairing this Alfredo dish with Cheesy Rosemary Monkey Bread Rolls is almost a cheese overload – but that’s what makes it so appealing.


Barbecued Pork Chops for Two

Barbecued Pork Chops for Two + Glazed Pillsbury Crescent Dinner Rolls

For your date night-in dinner, don’t forget the bread basket. Fill it up with Glazed Pillsbury Crescent Dinner Rolls, a simple restaurant-style side for barbecued pork chops.


Meat and Veggie Spaghetti

Meat and Veggie Spaghetti + Stuffed Mozzarella Garlic Bread

Mmm … Meat and Veggie Spaghetti is good. But it’s not what we’d consider dinner-worthy until you’ve added a side like Stuffed Mozzarella Garlic Bread to mop up every last bit of sauce. 


Easy Weeknight Chicken Cordon Bleu

Easy Weeknight Chicken Cordon Bleu + Original Crescents

A classic dish like Chicken Cordon Bleu needs a classic bread as its wingman. Original Crescents are a quick and simple choice – no embellishment needed.
