    Rita~'s Note:

    Lets talk comfort food! I'd even make this for Valentines day If you and your Loved One loves garlic you can't go wrong! Roasting the garlic make it so smooth and yummy. Roast an extra bulb of garlic to serve with a crisp French bread. Roasting garlic mellows and sweetens the garlic.

      Good soup. I thinned it out with milk, because it was really thick after pureeing. I used one normal head of garlic and one greatheaded garlic. I will use the greatheaded garlic again, since it was so much easier to roast and didn't burn on the edges like the smaller head.

      My husband loves rich and creamy soups & this was both. The garlic is not overpowering at all. My garlic heads were cooked at 40 minutes & I left them intact before roasting. After they cooled off I used kitchen shears to snip the end off for the "extraction." I also used garlic salt instead of regualr salt. I will make this again. It went well with another recipe called Veal Scallopine Saltimbocca.
