    Three Garlic Pasta

    Source of Recipe
    1 head plus 8 cloves garlic
    1 pound spaghetti
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    3/4 cup dry white wine
    1 cup loosely packed flat leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
    1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    Salt and freshly ground pepper
    Freshly grated Parmesan

    Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
    Wrap garlic head in foil, or place it in a garlic roaster; roast until garlic becomes soft and golden, about 1 hour. Let cool, and trim tip of head; squeeze out cloves using the back of a knife. Transfer cloves to a small bowl, and set aside.

    Cook pasta until al dente. Drain, and place under cold water to stop cooking.

    Thinly slice 5 cloves unroasted garlic. Finely chop remaining 3 cloves. Heat oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add sliced garlic; toast until golden and crisp. Remove garlic with a slotted spoon, and set it aside. Add chopped garlic, and saute until translucent, about 1 1/2 minutes. Add roasted garlic and white wine; let simmer about 3 minutes. Add pasta, parsley, red-pepper flakes, and salt and pepper; to taste, toss. Serve sprinkled with toasted garlic slivers. Grate cheese over each serving.
