Pasta With Three Kinds Of Garlic
This delicious recipe for pasta with three kinds of garlic was adapted from the March 1997 issue of Martha Stewart Living.
1 head plus 8 cloves garlic
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
1 pound farro spaghetti
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 cup dry white wine
1 cup loosely packed chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Parmesan, for grating
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Wrap garlic head in parchment paper-lined foil; roast until soft and golden, about 1 hour. Let cool, trim tip of head; squeeze out cloves, using back of knife. Transfer to small bowl; set aside.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add salt and pasta; cook according to package directions until al dente; drain.
Thinly slice 5 cloves of unroasted garlic; finely chop remaining 3 cloves. Heat oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add sliced garlic; toast until golden and crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove garlic; set aside. Add chopped garlic; saute until translucent, about 1 1/2 minutes. Add roasted garlic and white wine; let simmer about 3 minutes. Add pasta, parsley, and red pepper; season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Garnish with toasted garlic slivers; serve. Grate cheese over each serving, as desired.
