Olive Garden doesn't use 2 gloves of minced garlic - they use about 10 whole cloves of roasted garlic in each serving. Just got back from having it and I counted the garlic because I was so impressed.

I had probably 6-8 whole cloves each time I've had it but for me I would prefer they actually be minced. I like garlic but not being overwhelmed by it. Still I love this dish!
