I also had trouble roasting the garlic. Mine came out hard so I ended up with minced garlic sauted and that worked just fine. I also added a 4 oz. cream cheese and they came out creamy and delicious.

My fussiest son said this was "delicious". I forgot to buy the cream so used milk and it was fine. Only one remark, I'm a cook, so knew how to roast garlic, perhaps Tish needs to explain that step to others. Fantastic combo of flavours!

Excellent recipe, thouroughly enjoyed with our Thanksgiving turkey. I used sundried tomatoes in oil and left out the butter. I used my mini chopper to combine the garlic, basil & tomatoes. Excellent flavor
