Cheesy Artichoke Triangles

I actually don't use the refrigerated crescent rolls because I think they are gross. I just make a batch of my favorite bread dough and add some garlic powder and some dried parsley. This is so good and so worth the effort :)

2 pkg (8.5 oz each) refrigerated crescent rolls
2 tsp oregano and basil (or Italian Seasoning)
2 pkg (8 oz. each) cream cheese softened
1 can (14 oz) artichoke hearts in water, drained, chopped
1 cup (4 oz.) fresh parmesan cheese, grated
1 chopped garlic clove (I use two cloves ‘cause I love garlic!)
2 eggs
2 plum tomatoes sliced (you might need more depending on the size of your pan)
2 tbsp parsley

Unroll 1 pkg of rolls with longest sides of dough across width of pan. Repeat, filling pan. Roll dough to remove perforations. Press up sides for crust. Bake 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown. Microwave cream cheese on high 1 minute until soft. Wisk until smooth. Add ½ cup of parmesan cheese to bowl. Add eggs and 1 tsp of seasonings. Blend well. Add artichokes and garlic. Mix well. Spread artichoke mixture on rolls. Arrange sliced tomatoes on top. Sprinkle parsley on top. Sprinkle remaining parmesan cheese and seasonings on top. Bake 25-30 minutes at 325 degrees or until golden brown and set (do not over-bake! The texture turns funny.). Cool ten minutes. Cut into 12 squares. Cut squares in half diagonally.
