Sun Dried Tomato Garlic Bread with Parmesan, Pancetta, & Bell Pepper


How come many of the best foods, especially Italian foods, begin with the letter 'P'? Bread is Pane. Then there's pancetta like in this recipe, and...prosciutto, pizza, pasta, polenta, potatoes ( french fries and every other potatotastic invention). How about pie? This dish also has peppers, pine nuts, parmesan and parsley.
