Recipe Notes

  1. Total preparation time does not include the time to roast the garlic.
  2. 2. To roast a head of garlic, cut a little off the top of the head (1/4 inch or so) to reveal the cloves inside. Place the garlic head on a square of aluminum foil, sprinkle on a little salt and pepper to season and then drizzle with a teaspoon of olive oil. Bring all sides of the aluminum foil together and twist to seal the garlic head inside. Roast in a 350 degree F oven for about 45 minutes. Squeeze the garlic cloves out of their skins and mash with a fork until a smooth paste forms.
