Roasted Garlic & Parmesan Noodles

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Servings: 4 persons

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. spaghetti or other favorite noodles
  • 4 heads of garlic (See how to roast whole garlic here)
  • Drizzle olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • Pinchful of oregano leaves
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Cook the pasta noodles as directed on the package.
  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Cut off the tops of the garlic heads and place them in a small baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil, and place a small piece of foil over the top, so the tops don't burn.
  • Roast for 20-25 minutes, and enjoy the aroma.
  • Remove from oven and let cool until you can handle them, about 5 minutes.
  • Squeeze the roasted garlic into a small bowl or chopper/food processor. Add another drizzle of olive oil, the parmesan cheese, oregano leaves, salt and pepper. Mash well, or chop until "paste" forms.
  • Once the noodles are cooked and drained, add the paste and toss together.
  • Serve Roasted Garlic & Parmesan Noodles, as a side dish with baked chicken, beef roast, or other favorite Italian dish.
