DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • To roast your garlic, cut off the tops of the heads to expose the cloves (using a serrated knife will make this much easier).
  • Place the heads in a square of aluminum foil with the head facing up.
  • Drizzle with 1 or 2 tablespoons olive oil (2 tbsp for 2 heads).
  • Seal the foil and roast for 1 hour.
  • Let cool, and then separate heads into cloves and squeeze each clove to extract the garlic.
  • Place the roasted garlic into a blender or food processor.
  • Add the 1 tablespoon remaining olive oil and 1/4 cup cream and whirl until garlic is pulverized.
  • Add the rest of the cream, sour cream, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.
  • Whirl to combine.
  • Sauce will be thick at this point. Set aside.
  • Cook the pasta until al dente; drain.
  • Melt the butter in a skillet.
  • Add the pasta and toss with the butter until coated.
  • Add the sauce, cook and stir until sauce becomes thin.
  • Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Serve immediately with extra Parmesan cheese on top to desired taste.
  • To make this a more substantial meal, you could add chopped cooked chicken or shrimp, broccoli or peas.
