Roasted Mediterranean Vegetables with Goats Cheese

Another fridge clear out recipe!
The cherry tomatoes were doing nothing in my fridge along with the goats cheese and the sweet peppers.
So, I roasted them all in some lovely olive oil seasoned with salt and pepper - simple as that.
Preheat your oven to 200C/400F/or Gas 6
You will need:
Any amount of the following but here's what I used;
2 small red onions, 1 courgette, 2 sweet pointed peppers - de-seeded, 2 cloves of garlic - sliced and a bunch of cherry tomatoes on the vine. Then a good glug of good quality olive oil, salt and freshly ground black pepper.
2 goats cheese rounds
Cut everything into chunks - not too small and just slice the courgette. Peel and slice the garlic.
Put the lot into a roasting dish - except for the tomatoes. They wont take long to cook so leave them out for now.
Pour over a good glug of olive oil - season with salt and pepper then mix it all about so everything gets coated nicely.
Remember not to put those tomatoes in yet - keep them to one side.
Cook for about 10 minutes then give it a stir. Cook for another 5-10 minutes (just make sure they're not getting too done) then add rub the tomatoes with a little oil then place them onto top of the veg.
Cook for another 5 minutes - and add the goats cheese drizzle with a teeny bit of olive oil and cook for 5 minutes more. Just check but the cheese should have just started to melt.
Remove the lot from the oven and use a cooks blow torch to finish off the goats cheese giving it a nice bit of colour. Serve straight away.
