Roasted Garlic with Parmesan Cheese and Olive Oil

Roasted Garlic, Parmesan Cheese and Olive Oil…You cannot get much better than that!!!  Over the weekend, I had dinner with some friends at an Italian restaurant.  This is what was served with the bread before the meal.  It reminded me that something so simple can be such a crowd pleaser.  I knew what I was coming home to make!  We all have to splurge every now and then on a little bread and olive oil, but the roasted garlic is the real treat!  Garlic is believed to help prevent heart disease and cancer.  It is low in calories and very easy to keep on hand.  Try this next time you need a simple appetizer or just want a little treat yourself! 

Roasted Garlic, Parmesan Cheese and Olive Oil

1 bulb of garlic

1 tsp. plus a few T. olive oil

2 T. parmesan cheese

French baguette or any other fresh french bread


To roast the garlic-

Cut off the top of the garlic bulb 1/4 inch from the top.  Wrap the bulb in aluminum foil and drizzle with 1 tsp. olive oil.  Wrap tightly and cook at 400 for 30-35 minutes.  Garlic is roasted when it feels soft.  Remove from oven  and let cool enough to touch. 

On a serving plate, squeeze out garlic from each clove.  Add 2 T. parmesan cheese and a few Tbs. olive oil to the plate.  Combine roasted garlic, parmesan cheese and olive oil.  Serve with a warm loaf of french bread. 

I know you will love it!
