What I love about this recipe is that the sauce is so good that it could be used on many other foods like pasta with your favorite add ins.

*NOTE: If you have never roasted garlic just preheat your oven to 350’f, cut the tops off of two small garlic cloves, or one large, drizzle with a little olive oil or avocado oil, wrap in foil, and bake for 30 minutes. Allow to slightly cool before using. Store unused garlic in the fridge.
