  • Parchment-lined foil
  • Olive oil
  • A few sprigs thyme
  • 3/4 pound penne
  • 1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano

  1. Trim the top thirds of garlic heads. Set on parchment-lined foil, drizzle with olive oil, top with thyme, and wrap. Roast at 400 degrees for 1 hour. Cook penne, reserving 3/4 cup pasta water.
