Chef Chuck's Roasted Garlic Pasta

Pasta all'Aglio Arrostito
A robust pasta dish with our homegrown Italian garlic roasted to perfection, extra virgin olive oil, red hot pepper flakes, parmigiana cheese and fresh parsley. This garlic has flavor with meaning because we purchased it in Italy, and grew it our fields. It's harvest time in the garlic fields, so we will have lots more recipes with fresh garlic to come.


Roasted Garlic Pasta

1/2 pound pasta
2 garlic bulbs, roasted
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon red hot pepper flakes
1 tablespoon fresh parsley
salt and pepper
parmigiana cheese, grated


Preheat oven to 400 degrees, prepare garlic by removing some of the paper and cut off tops, drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Wrap in foil and bake 400 degrees for 35 minutes. Open up and let cool, meanwhile cook pasta in salted boiling water till al dente. While pasta is cooking heat up a large frying pan add olive oil and squeeze out garlic and crush with a wooden spoon, add red hot pepper flakes and simmer for a minute or two. Add the pasta with a little pasta water (1/4 cup). Toss and add grated cheese, salt, pepper and parsley.
