1. Heat oven to 425°F. Rub all sides of tenderloin with olive oil and place on rack in shallow roasting pan. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, ½ teaspoon garlic powder, salt and pepper evenly over entire tenderloin. Roast 25 to 30 minutes per pound until internal temperature reaches 150°F. Remove pork from oven and let stand 5 to 10 minutes. Cut pork into very thin slices.
2. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix together ricotta cheese, remaining 1 tablespoon Italian herb mix and ½ teaspoon garlic powder, and onion powder until well combined. Set aside.
3. Place baguette slices on large baking sheet and bake at 425°F for 2 to 4 minutes per side while tenderloin is standing.
4. To assemble, spread about 1 tablespoon ricotta cheese mix on one side of each baguette slice; top with thin slices of pork. Garnish with a drizzle of balsamic glaze and parsley.
