Using a mini food processor, process walnuts into fine crumbs. Add the gorgonzola, ricotta, parsley, 2 tablespoons oil, honey, lemon juice, and Parmesan cheese. Process ingredients until thoroughly blended. Set mixture aside.

Arrange the sixteen bread triangles on a cookie sheet. Brush bread with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Toast bread for 10 minutes. Remove from oven.
