Roast the Garlic
Completely submerge 1 cup of peeled whole garlic cloves in olive oil and roast covered in a 300 degree oven for about 90 minutes. Remove from oven and use a slotted spoon to remove the garlic cloves. (See Recipe Notes)
Toast the Pine Nuts
Make the Alfredo
Recipe Notes: To properly roast the garlic, it is important to completely submerge it - whole and peeled - in olive oil while baking. This recipe makes quite a bit, but the sauce can be frozen for easy future meals.
Note: Save the garlic infused oil for other uses. I put mine in a glass jar and store it in the fridge. I use it to make garlic bread, drizzle it in soups or over roasted vegetables or greens.
