  • 3 Sprinkle each rectangle with 1 tablespoon cheese and 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning. Starting with one short side, roll up each rectangle, forming 4 rolls. With serrated knife, cut each roll into 8 slices.

  • 5 Bake first tree 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes; cool on cooling rack. Repeat for second tree on another cookie sheet.
  • 6 Place trees on serving platters. Spoon potato topper into resealable plastic bag. Cut 1/4-inch hole in bottom corner of bag; pipe over trees.
  • 7 Place tomato slice on each pinwheel except top and bottom ones. With 1 1/4- to 1 1/2-inch star-shaped cutter, cut 2 stars from yellow bell pepper; place 1 on top of each tree. Chop remaining bell pepper; sprinkle over trees. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve immediately, or refrigerated until serving time.
