Creamy Roasted Garlic Spaghetti

 It seems like forever since I have posted a recipe.  It has been busy around here but I am still cooking a lot.  This recipe was a huge hit around here and so very easy to make.

 First you need to roast a head of garlic.  Just slice off the top of a head of garlic and place it on some foil.  Drizzle olive oil over it, pinch the foil shut and place it in a 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes.  After it cools a bit, squeeze each clove out of its skin and dice it up.  It should be very soft.  Save all of the olive oil too.  Dice up some fresh parsley.

 In a bit of butter and the roasted garlic olive oil, saute a diced small onion. Add more olive oil if needed.  Sprinkle with cracked black pepper and salt.

 Add a few tablespoons of half and half or cream.  Whisk it around and add 1 cup of chicken stock.

 Boil 1 pound of spaghetti until al dente, drain and mix in the sauce.

Serve it with some Parmesan cheese for sprinkling.
