In the magical world of food, the littlest tweak can take an ingredient from good to amazing. With a little bit of heat, butter goes from boring and pale to golden brown with deep, nutty flavor. A drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of salt, and a quick roast in the oven turns veggies from limp and plain to tender and flavorful. Caramelizing raw onions morphs them into sweet, buttery, onion gold. When it comes to the magic of cooking, wonders never cease. With just a little bit of love, we can take something we like and transform it into something we love.
One beautiful example of this is roasted garlic. We all like garlic, and that’s why we love roasted garlic. It’s so sweet and delicious, with an intoxicating flavor that permeates through whatever food is lucky enough to be graced by its presence. Roasted garlic has that familiar flavor you love plus a layer of sweet depth that only roasting it can give. There is no better way to describe it than beautiful.
I’ve been racking my brain to discover the perfect way to utilize the potent powers of roasted garlic. When a strong craving for Fettuccine Alfredo hit me, the answer became obvious: Roasted Garlic Alfredo. I love, love, love traditional Alfredo sauce, and I make a pretty mean Alfredo, if I may be so bold as to say so. The only way it could possibly be better is with some wonderful roasted garlic.
