Fresh fettuccine pasta tossed in a sweet caramelized roasted garlic and rosemary sauce. —Riley Wofford

What You'll Need
  • 2 heads of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped rosemary leaves
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound fresh fettuccine pasta
  • 1 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese
  1. Preheat the oven to 475°F. Cut the heads of garlic in half crosswise and place on a sheet of aluminum foil. Drizzle the olive oil over the tops and fold the foil up around the garlic to seal. Roast for about 1 hour, until the garlic cloves are soft and lightly caramelized. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
  2. Remove the garlic from the foil and squeeze the cloves into a blender with the vinegar, heavy cream, rosemary, parsley, and sugar and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Pour the sauce into a large skillet and place over low heat.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until al dente. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the pasta to the skillet with the garlic sauce and toss gently to combine. Add the cheese and toss again to coat.

Hi, I attempted to make this last night for dinner."Cut the heads of garlic in half crosswise and place on a sheet of aluminum foil" and baking at 475 degrees for about an hour produced burt garlic cloves. I plan on trying again but roasting at 375 with the bulb cut about a half in from the top until golden.

Did you wrap the foil tightly around the garlic cloves? They shouldn't have burned as long as they were well covered.

Hi, yes I did. I'm going to make again though. My oven is not the best.
