    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 1 whole head of garlic
    • 400g small shape pasta (e.g. penne)
    • 5 tablespoons olive oil
    • 5 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced

    • 50g Parmesan cheese, grated

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
    2. Wrap the whole head of garlic (unpeeled) in foil and place in a baking tin.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes or until tender. Once cooked, remove from oven and let it cool for a little bit. Squeeze each garlic clove to obtain the creamy pulp of the garlic. Transfer to a plate and chop a little bit for a more minced texture.
    4. In a large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook pasta until just al dente, according to the instructions on the packet. Drain well and toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
    5. In a medium saucepan, heat the remaining olive oil and cook and stir chopped fresh tomatoes and sun-dried tomatoes for about 5 minutes. Add roasted garlic and season with salt, pepper and oregano.
    6. Add cooked pasta, toss well and serve in individual bowls. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
