I accidentally bought a take and bake loaf of Italian bread to make oven baked garlic bread. Do I bake it off first and then proceed with the recipe? Thanks!!

If the recipe calls for a loaf of Italian bread, already baked (which I assume it does), then yes, bake it and then proceed. Remember though that the second step of baking won't take as long, because the bread will be warm -- if you don't cool it thoroughly, first. The bread will cut better if you cool it a bit. ;o)
