Heat oil in a medium soup pot medium-low heat. Add onions and sprinkle with 1 tsp salt. Cook, stirring often, until golden and softened, about 10-15 minutes. Add chili flakes and garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add tomatoes, basil, Italian seasoning, and remaining salt and simmer sauce for 10-15 minutes for flavors to meld.
While sauce simmers, spread goat cheese in the bottom of a small gratin or baking dish and preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brush baguette slices with olive oil and toast in oven for 5 minutes. Rub each slice with garlic clove. Spoon marinara sauce around the edge of the baking dish, leaving some goat cheese showing in the center. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until bubbly and goat cheese is starting to brown. Drizzle with remaining 1 tsp olive oil, garnish with torn herbs and hot pepper flakes and serve at once with garlic toast.
