    Scrivener1's Note:

    I found this recipe in Peter Reinhart's book American Pie. Put the garlic on top of a pizza (try #186393) for a special treat or freeze/refrigerate it to use in other recipes. Save the oil for salads and sauces.

      This was very good. I made this recipe a couple of days ago and used it last night with some cooked rotini noodles.... just lightly tossed together. It was a nice garlic flavor, but not too much. Thank you for the great recipe!
