- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can chicken broth

- boiled pasta such as macaroni, stars etc. Any small variety of pasta will do

- Remove any papery skin from the fresh heads of garlic. Cut a little off the tops of garlic heads to expose fresh garlic and drizzle olive oil over top.
- Place garlic in an oven safe baking dish.Cover and bake for 45 minutes.Let garlic cool before going to next steps.
