How to roast shallots and garlic

Roasted garlic is so tasty and makes a major difference in your meals, sauces, appetizers and dips.  If roasted correctly your garlic will be soft enough to mash and full of flavor.  Roasting garlic is actually very easy to do, I have included my “recipe” to roast garlic or shallots below. I like to roast both on pizza night (for my sauce, garlic bread and pizza as well), I hope you enjoy your roasted garlic and shallots as much as my family and I do!
