Video Tutorial


For the roasted garlic:

-1 bulb garlic
-1 teaspoon olive oil
-Salt

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees with rack set in middle of oven. Trim off ½ inch of the top of the bulb (the papery end) to expose the cloves of garlic. Drizzle the garlic with one teaspoon olive oil. Sprinkle lightly with salt and loosely wrap in aluminum foil or place in a terracotta garlic roaster. Bake 40-50 minutes until very soft. When cool enough to handle, separate cloves and squeeze garlic right out of its skin. Each bulb will make approximately three tablespoons roasted garlic.

-1 loaf Italian bread
-½ stick unsalted butter, melted
-1/8 teaspoon salt
-2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
-1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
-½ cup Uncle Steve’s Marinara Sauce, heated
