  • “I also had trouble roasting the garlic. Mine came out hard so I ended up with minced garlic sauted and that worked just fine. I also added a 4 oz. cream cheese and they came out creamy and delicious.”

  • “My fussiest son said this was “delicious”.I forgot to buy the cream so used milk and it was fine.Only one remark, I’m a cook, so knew how to roast garlic, perhaps Tish needs to explain that step to others.Fantastic combo of flavours!”

  • “Excellent recipe, thouroughly enjoyed with our Thanksgiving turkey.I used sundried tomatoes in oil and left out the butter. I used my mini chopper to combine the garlic, basil & tomatoes.Excellent flavor”
