Garlicky Pasta Chicken Salad

6 whole heads of fresh garlic
3/4 cup olive oil
4 rosemary sprigs (optional)
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
1 T fresh rosemary leaves or 1 t dried
8 oz. corkscrew pasta, cooked and drained
2 cups cooked chicken, cut in strips
1/2 cup sliced green onion
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
2/3 cup chopped walnuts
Lettuce leaves

Separate cloves of garlic and drop into boiling water for 1 minute.
Drain and peel. Place peeled cloves in small saucepan with oil
and optional rosemary sprigs. Cook gently, covered, stirring
occasionally, for about 25 minutes or until garlic is tender.
Discard rosemary sprigs and puree garlic with 1/2 cup of the olive
oil, basil, and the rosemary leaves.

Place pasta in large bowl and add garlic puree, chicken, onion,
Parmesan, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly. Add more olive oil if
needed to moisten salad.

Let salad sit for 1 hour a room temperature (provided its not a
hot room that will invite bacteria to go nuts!) or refrigerate,
returning mixture to room temperature before serving. Toast walnuts
in 375-degree oven for 10 minutes. Stir into the salad and serve
over a mix of crisp, chilled lettuces.
