Courgette and Roasted Garlic Linguine

Courgette Linguine

Whenever the oven is going on with a little space I like to pop at the bottom of the oven a tray of skin-on garlic cloves , lightly drizzled in oil . Once cooled I put them in a preserving jar and cover with olive oil . The garlic cloves can be squeezed out the result garlic in tasty but creamier than raw garlic fantatic in dressing , the oil too becomes infused with olive oil . Loving garlic as I do I am afraid I have never managed to leave a jar to go off they live in the fridge for a fair few weeks though.

Garlic Roasted

The roasted garlic is perfect in the following pasta dish which takes less than 15 minutes to put together , lots of courgettes in the vegebox this week , usually do a tomato pasta sauce but in an unprecedented case I have run out of tins of tomatoes .
