What a great gift!
Not much is closer to an Italian woman's heart than garlic, tomatoes and basil. Our great member Tricia sent me about a dozen heads of this years garlic crop. It is so mellow. The cloves are so fat and luscious. Couldn't ask for a better gift.
You guys know what a pasta head I am so I was lucky enough to have friends give me tomatoes, basil and lots of eggplant so I used almost a whole head of that garlic and made a really delicious pasta sauce. Oh, I had a couple of patty pan and threw them in too. The garlic really did carry the dish. We had it on farfalle. Perfect.
Thanks so much Tricia for such a generous gift. It is well loved. My hero. Smiles. I'm going to make ratatouille with some next and some hummus is on the list too.
You can even see in the picture how fat each clove is. Yummm.
