Brown Butter Roasted Garlic Sauce

Pasta is a go-to meal for us. It’s just so addicting and satisfying, ALWAYYYS. Pasta is fun because there are endless sauce recipes you can make to elevate your noodles. This recipe uses roasted garlic and brown butter that creates a powerful and delicious sauce which makes it a must try!

Servings: Makes 2 cups of sauce


  • 1 garlic head

  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan

  • 6 tablespoons butter

  • 1 ½ cup heavy cream

  • Pinch of salt and pepper

  • 1 tsp olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Slice the top of the garlic head off to expose the garlic cloves. Drizzle with olive oil, wrap in foil and bake in oven for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and unwrap foil. Allow the garlic to cool before handling. Once cool, peel cloves and smash using a fork. TIP: You should be able to squeeze the tops of the garlic head and the garlic cloves will pop out of their shells easily and naturally. 

  1. Slice your butter into tablespoons that way it melts quickly and evenly. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, add butter to melt. Once melted, turn heat down to medium. Swirl the pan occasionally to ensure the butter is browning evenly. Do this for about 3 minutes until the butter is lightly browned. 

  1. Over medium heat, once your butter is lightly browned, immediately add in your smashed garlic and whisk until fragrant. Slowly pour in heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper. Let simmer for 1-2 minutes. Lower heat to low and add in parmesan cheese. Whisk until fully combine and melted. 

Notes: Serve over your favorite pasta immediately or store in refrigerator in a sealed jar. Warm sauce by heating in microwave for 30 second intervals up to 1 minute. Stir between each 30 seconds of heating to evenly heat and melt. Keep in refrigerator for up to 4 days.
