  • Roast for 35 to 40 minutes or until vegetables are tender and slightly charred on the edges, stirring twice. Cool slightly on a wire rack.

  • Transfer tomato mixture to a food processor. Cover and pulse with several on-off turns until tomato mixture is chopped but still slightly chunky. Stir in balsamic vinegar and thyme. Stir in basil just before serving.

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Slice a 16-ounce whole grain baguette crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices (about 36 slices). Lightly coat bread slices with cooking spray. Place on a baking sheet. Bake for 4 to 6 minutes or until golden brown and crisp, turning once. Cool on a wire rack.

  • Top each bread slice with 1 tablespoon of the vegetable mixture. Thinly shave 2 ounces Parmesan cheese. Place a piece or two of cheese atop veggie spread on each bread slice.
