Roasted Garlic Sauce

This sauce is a tasty accompaniment to new potatoes.  You can dip them in the sauce like I do or you can toss the potatoes with the sauce to coat them.  I am sure you can find a multitude of other ways to use it as well.  Don't limit yourself in the ways to use this.  

Roasted Garlic Sauce

1 head of garlic
olive oil
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
2 tbsp. minced fresh herbs ( I used flat leaf parsley and chives)

Remove the papery outer layers of the head of garlic.  Cut off enough of the top to expose a small amount of the cloves.  Place on a piece of foil and drizzle with olive oil.  If you want you can sprinkle it with some Italian seasoning.  Wrap it up tightly and place it in a 400 degree oven for 20 to 30 minutes or until fragrant and soft.  

Remove two of the cloves (save the others for another use)  and place them in a small bowl.  Sprinkle them with salt and mash with a fork.  The salt helps the garlic to mash smoothly.  Whisk in the greek yogurt and herbs.

Sauce up whatever you would like!

Here is and idea for the rest of the roasted garlic:  Remove the cloves from the skin.  Mash them in a bowl with salt.  Cook 6 ounces of pasta (angel hair or spaghetti work best for this) reserving 1/4 cup cooking water when you drain it.  While you are draining the pasta add olive oil to the bottom of the pot and heat slightly.  Add the mashed garlic and cooking water.  Stir together and add the pasta and toss till the pasta is coated with the garlic.  Yum!
