Dice tomatoes and sautee with garlic in olive oil until soft. Add herbs, and vinegar and simmer for 5 minutes. Chop coarsely in blender, and add salt and pepper to taste. Cool.
Brush baguette slices with olive oil, and spread liberally with roasted garlic. Place a 1/2" slice of chevre on each piece of toast. Place in a baking pan and drizzle liberally with extra-virgin olive oil. Place in 450 degree oven for 8 minutes.
