Roasted Garlic Bread ( Italian Recipe)

Garlic Bread
Source: alrecipies.com

INGREDIENTS

1 loaf (16 ounces) crusty French bread
5 heads roasted garlic
4 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, 
¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Instructions to prepare this delicious Italian Recipe

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Use a sharp knife to slice the bread into even slices. Place them on a large, rimmed baking sheet (lined with parchment paper for easy clean-up, if desired).
  • Remove the cloves of roasted garlic from the heads. Mash them with a fork until mostly smooth. Add the butter and salt and keep mashing till evenly combined. Scoop half of the mixture onto the cut side of one piece of bread, and spread it evenly across with a butter knife or spatula.
  • Repeat with the rest of the garlic mix on the remaining bread.
  • Bake for 5 minutes (for softer bread) or 10 to 12 minutes, until the edges turn golden and crisp enough to resist a gentle squeeze (similar to the toasted bread shown in photos).
  • Sprinkle with parsley. Once cool, slice into pieces of about 2 to 3 inches wide with a serrated knife. 
  • Bread should be consumed or refrigerated within 2 hours.

 

Baked Ziti with Roasted Vegetables (Italian Recipe)

Baked Ziti with Roasted Vegetables

INGREDIENTS

Roasted veggies
1 medium head of cauliflower, cut into bite-sized florets
1 red bell pepper, cut into 1″ squares
1 medium yellow onion, sliced into wedges about ½″ wide
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
¼ teaspoon fine sea salt, divided
Pasta and everything else
8 ounces ziti, rigatoni or penne pasta
4 cups (32 ounces) marinara sauce (homemade or store-bought), divided
¼ cup chopped fresh basil, plus extra for garnish
8 ounces (2 packed cups) grated part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
2 cups (16 ounces) cottage cheese or ricotta cheese, divided

Instructions to prepare this delicious Italian Recipe

  • To roast the veggies: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit with racks in the middle and upper third of the oven. Line two large, rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper to prevent the vegetables from sticking.
  • Place the cauliflower florets on one pan. On the other pan, combine the bell peppers and onion. Drizzle half of the olive oil over one pan, and the other half over the other pan. Sprinkle salt over the two. Gently toss until the vegetables on each pan are lightly coated in oil.
  • Arrange the vegetables evenly across each pan. Bake until the vegetables are tender and caramelized on the edges. In about 30 to 35 minutes, toss the veggies and swap their rack positions halfway (lower rack to upper rack, and vice versa). Leave the oven on at 425, because we’re going to bake the dish at the same temperature. If you end up with any stray burnt onion pieces, discard them, and set the vegetables aside.
  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta until al dente, (Let it cook while your veggies bake in the oven). Drain and return the pasta to the pot.
  • Add 2 cups of the marinara, chopped basil, and ½ cup of the mozzarella to the pasta. Gently stir to combine.
  • It’s assembly time! Spread 1 cup of additional marinara sauce inside a 9×13″ baker. Top with half of the pasta mixture, and gently spread it evenly. Now sprinkle the roasted cauliflower on top, then dollop 1 cup of the cottage cheese over the cauliflower (No need to spread it into an even layer), followed by ½ cup of the mozzarella.
  • Top the mozzarella with the remaining cooked pasta. Then sprinkle the roasted peppers and onion on top, dollop the remaining cup of ricotta on top, followed by a dollop of the remaining cup of marinara and finally sprinkle the remaining cheese all over.
  • Place a clean, rimmed baking sheet on the lower oven rack to catch any drippings. Place the ziti, uncovered, on top of the baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, then transfer it to the upper rack for 2 to 5 more minutes until the cheese is deeply golden, as desired.
  • Remove the baked dish from the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes before serving (trust me). Sprinkle freshly torn basil on top and serve.
