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


More than not, the majority of my favorite Italian foods begin with the letter "P"! Bread in Italain is pane, there is pancetta, proscuitto, pizza, polenta, potatoes, and let's not forget pie. This dish is full of flavor from the fresh parsely, pepper, pine nuts, and creamy parmesean. All topped onto fresh crunchy bread, you will never want an average garlic bread again.
