My step-by-step instructions easily will produce the BEST Garlic Powder you've ever tasted. Try it in your Italian food dishes; nothing like it.

Peel the garlic cloves and cut them into thin pieces. Place on a baking sheet in a 150 degree oven or use a food dehydrator; turning often.

Grind the dried pieces in a blender and sift the material in a strainer to separate the chunks from the fine powder. The chunks are excellent on pizza or in sauce, by the way.

Store the chunks and powder in airtight containers, or freeze for long-time storage.

This is a wonderful hearty and easy baked ziti recipe. I personally love it.


1 lb sweet or spicy Italian sausage

Place sausage in a shallow baking pan and bake for 40 minutes, or until sausage is browned and cooked through. Cut into 1/4 inch pieces. Prepare the topping.

Best Garlic Bread

Add 1 cup of the tomato sauce and mix well. Transfer this into a greased baking pan and pour the remaining 1 cup of sauce over the top. Sprinkle with the topping.

Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes. Sprinkle the mozzarella and return to the oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
