      Heat broiler and position oven rack 5 inches from flame. Combine olive oil and garlic paste in a small saucepan and heat over medium low until garlic begins to gently sizzle, about 3 minutes (do not brown garlic.) Remove from heat and transfer mixture to a small mixing bowl; let cool. Add butter, parsley, lemon zest and grated cheese and stir with a spatula until evenly combined.

      Place baguette halves cut-side up on a baking sheet. Broil until lightly toasted, about 1 minute; remove from oven. Spread half the garlic-butter paste on each piece of bread, taking care to cover the edges. Broil until cheese is bubbly and browned and bread is toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from oven, slice, and serve.
