      To roast your garlic, cut off the tops of the heads to expose the cloves (using a serrated knife will make this much easier).

      Drizzle with 1 or 2 tablespoons olive oil (2 tbsp for 2 heads).
    5. 5
      Seal the foil and roast for 1 hour.
    6. 6
      Let cool, and then separate heads into cloves and squeeze each clove to extract the garlic.
    7. 7
      Place the roasted garlic into a blender or food processor.
    8. 8
      Add the 1 tablespoon remaining olive oil and 1/4 cup cream and whirl until garlic is pulverized.
    9. 9
      Add the rest of the cream, sour cream, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.
    10. 10
      Whirl to combine.
    11. 11
      Sauce will be thick at this point. Set aside.
    12. 12
      Cook the pasta until al dente; drain.
    13. 13
      Melt the butter in a skillet.
    14. 14
      Add the pasta and toss with the butter until coated.
    15. 15

    16. 16
      Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    17. 17
      Serve immediately with extra Parmesan cheese on top to desired taste.
    18. 18

      This was a very easy recipe. I recommend using 2 heads of garlic if you are a big garlic fan. I added chicken and mushroms to mine and used a blend of three cheeses as well.. This will definitely be a repeat at our house!!!

      Excellent. I made the roasted garlic but used Rosemary Roasted Garlic to add rosemary to it as it roasted. This was delicious, the pepper i used was freshly cracked multicolor pepper. My figure will never forgive you :)
