  • 1
    Heat the oven to 375°F. Place the bread slices on an ungreased cookie sheet. Drizzle about 1 teaspoon olive oil (of the 1/4 cup olive oil) on each bread slice. Bake about 4 minutes or until golden brown. Turn bread over; bake about 4 minutes longer or until golden brown.
  • 2
    Cut each garlic clove in half; rub cut sides over tops and sides of toasted bread slices. Discard garlic.
  • 3
    Drain the red peppers in a strainer in the sink. Cut the peppers into 1/2-inch strips. In a medium bowl, mix the peppers, parsley, Parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon olive oil, the salt and pepper. Spoon onto toast.

  • Use 1 cup chopped tomato (about 1 large) instead of the roasted red bell peppers. If you like, stir in 2 tablespoons drained small capers.
  • Flat-leaf parsley, also known as Italian parsley, is becoming more popular. It has a stronger "peppery" flavor than the popular curly-leaf parsley. Either will work in this recipe.
  • You can toast the bread slices up to 1 day ahead. Cool, then store in an airtight container at room temperature.
