2 cloves garlic
1-1/2 cups flat-leaf parsley leaves, lightly packed
1/3 cup walnut pieces
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup olive oil
1 (1 pound) loaf Italian bread

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Drop the garlic into a running food processor or blender and process until finely chopped. Add the parsley, walnuts, Parmesan cheese, basil and salt; process until the parsley and walnuts are finely chopped.

Step 2

With the food processor or blender running, gradually add the oil. Process, scraping the side down occasionally, until the mixture is smooth.

Step 3

With a serrated knife, cut the bread in half, horizontally. Spread the herb topping over the cut sides of the bread. Wrap each half loosely in aluminum foil.

Step 4

Bake until the bread is heated through, 15 to 18 minutes. Unwrap the top of the bread and bake for 3 minutes longer. Cut each half into 2-inch slices. Serve warm.
