Beef and Roasted Pepper Crostini

3/4 lb thinly sliced deli roast beef
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 large garlic cloves, crushed
2 loaves (8oz each) French bread, cut into 1/2" thick slices
1 (12oz) jar roasted red peppers, rinsed, drained and chopped
2 C shredded Italian cheese

Heat oven to 450. In 1-cup glass measure, combine oil and garlic; microwave on high 30 seconds. Lightly brush top side of each bread slice with oil mixture; arrange on 2 baking sheets. Bake at 450 for 6-8 minutes or until light golden brown. Layer equal amounts of beef, red peppers and cheese over toasted bread. Return to oven; bake an additional 2-4 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
