cream cheese and pesto bread

1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 loaf French bread, split lengthwise
1/2 cup Basil Pesto
2 tomatoes, seeded, chopped, and drained
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl combine cream cheese and garlic. Spread on cut side of bread. Spread pesto on top. Add tomatoes and Parmesan cheese.

Place on a baking sheet and bake until bread is warmed and cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Cut into serving pieces and serve immediately.

Note: If using purchased pesto, pour off some to the oil that accumulates on the top, then stir to blend before spreading on bread.
