  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cut the top third off the head of garlic, exposing the tops of the garlic cloves. Put on a piece of aluminum foil, drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Wrap tightly and roast until the cloves are golden brown and very soft, about 45 minutes; cool slightly.
  3. Unwrap the garlic and pour any garlic-flavored oil from the foil into a small bowl; squeeze the roasted cloves into the same bowl, discarding the papery shells. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and mash with a fork until smooth; season with additional salt and pepper.
  4. Put the bread halves on a baking sheet and evenly spread with the roasted garlic mixture. Top with the Parmesan and a few grinds of pepper. Bake until the bread is toasted and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and cut into pieces.
