2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

Directions

~Preheat oven at 375°.

~Separate crescent dough into eight triangles. Place in an ungreased 9-in. fluted tart pan with removable bottom with points toward the center. Press onto the bottom and up the sides to form a crust; seal seams. Set aside.

~In a small skillet, saute red pepper in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Remove from the heat.

~Bake for 25-30 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.
