Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I love roasted vegetables but never made a sandwich with them before. This roasted vegetable sandwich is going to be a staple this summer. It's very fresh and filling. It's a great way to use some of the amazing summertime veggies. I tried this with Provolone, but next time I'm definitely going to use the goat cheese. So good!

Ingredients

1
baguette
1 pkg
goat cheese or sliced provolone cheese, about 5 oz.
olive oil, light
Italian seasoning
1
zucchini
1
eggplant
2
tomatoes
8-10 sprig(s)
basil
salt and pepper

Step-By-Step

1Slice zucchini and eggplant lengthwise in 1/4-inch slices and tomatoes in 1/2-inch rounds. Line colander with eggplant and tomato slices and liberally sprinkle with salt. (This will help reduce the moisture.) Let drain for 10-15 minutes.

2In the meantime, cut the baguette in fourths and slice down the middle. Toast under the broiler. After they cool slightly spread goat cheese (or provolone cheese) on both sides.

3Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Rinse eggplant and pat dry with paper towels. Lay eggplant, tomatoes, and zucchini on parchment. Sprinkle with Italian season and a light drizzle of olive oil. Salt and pepper if desired.

4Place veggies under broiler and watch closely! Everyone's oven cooks differently but mine usually takes about 10-15 minutes. Remove from broiler and assembly the sandwiches. Starting with eggplant on the bottom, then zucchini, tomatoes, and fresh basil.
