Savory Parmesan Bites

(8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
small red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

(8-ounce) cans refrigerated crescent dinner rolls


Stir together softened cream cheese, 3/4 cup cheese, bell pepper, and parsley.


Unroll crescent rolls, and separate each can into 4 rectangles, pressing perforations to seal. Spread 3 tablespoons cream cheese mixture on each rectangle. Roll up, starting at 1 short side, jelly-roll fashion. Cut each roll into 4 equal pieces, using a serrated knife. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Sprinkle bites with remaining ¼ cup cheese.


Bake at 350° for 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
