  • 16 fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

Preparation


Preheat oven to 350°.

Place first 4 ingredients (pesto through black pepper) in a food processor; process until smooth. Spread 2 teaspoons of pesto mixture evenly over each bread slice. Bake on an ungreased baking sheet for 10 minutes. Garnish each slice with 1 parsley leaf.
