While garlic is roasting, prepare Garlic Butter:
  • In a medium-size bowl, combine butter, Parmesan, crushed garlic, Italian seasoning, parsley and red pepper flakes. Refrigerate.

Prepare Tomato Basil Salsa:
  • In a medium-size sauté pan over medium heat combine oil and garlic. Cook until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and heat through. Stir in basil, salt and pepper and remove from heat.

  • Remove roasted garlic from oven, unwrap foil and cool. Once cooled, squeeze cloves from papery skin. Set aside.

  • Spread 1/2 cup garlic butter over bread (reserve remaining 1/2 cup for another use). Bake at 350° for 20 minutes, until browned. Top with tomato salsa, roasted garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and Parmesan cheese. Slice into pieces and serve.
