Simmer vegetables until the liquid evaporates, then salt and pepper. Pour 120 g of grated cheese into a frying pan and stir. Spread the filling on slices of toasted bread, sprinkle with grated cheese and put them in the oven at 180 ° C. As soon as the cheese melts, remove the bruschetta, decorate with herbs and serve immediately.
