Gather your ingredients together.
Preheat the broiler.
Blanch the tomatoes in boiling water for 30 seconds.
Submerge immediately in an ice bath.
Remove the skins and seeds.
Arrange the slices of bread on a baking sheet and broil 5 inches from the heat until lightly browned.
Turn and brown the other side.
In a small bowl, combine a tablespoon of roasted garlic* with enough olive oil to make a paste and spread the mixture on one side of the bread.
In a skillet, heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat, add the tomatoes, salt and pepper, and toss for 1 to 2 minutes, just until the tomatoes are heated through.
Stir in basil and vinegar.
Top the toasted slices with the tomato mixture and serve with Parmesan cheese. Delicious!
