Garlic, Rosemary

This is a simple recipe but oh so flavorful! Gigi gives an explanation of how she uses it in her story. I put rosemary in the painting because I like garlic and rosemary and I thought that the painting needed a green element.

This is an all-time favorite of mine. We toss garlic cloves with Parmesan cheese, spinach and pasta.  It’s our fave family dinner because it’s so easy and quick to prepare. This recipe was handed down to my mom by her mom–so it’s been in the family for a bit of time. Enjoy!

Roasted Garlic

1 or more heads of garlic

Olive oil

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Peel the garlic, leaving the head intact with all the cloves connected.

Trim about ¼ inch off the head of garlic.

Drizzle 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil over the exposed surface of the garlic.

Wrap the garlic in aluminum foil and roast in the oven for 40 minutes.
