  • 2 Tubes Refrigerated Crescent Rolls
  • 1 Pkg Cream Cheese (8 oz) - softened
  • 3/4 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese (plus a little more for sprinkling)
  • 1 Cup Chopped Red Pepper
  • 1/3 Cup Chopped Fresh Parsley (or approx 1 Tbl dried parsley)


  • Separate the two tubes of crescent rolls into 8 rectangles. Press the diagonal perforations to seal.
  • Mix the cream cheese and the parmesan together using an electric mixer until well blended.
  • Spread some of the cream cheese mixture on each rectangle, dividing the mixture evenly among the 8 rectangles. Then top with the chopped red pepper and parsley.
  • Then fold up each long end of the rectangle toward the middle, enclosing the filling and creating a "log".  Cut each log into four or five smaller pieces.
  • Place each piece, seam side down, on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with a little bit more grated parmesan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes.
