Default Roasted Garlic

Does anybody regularly roast garlic? Being a garlic lover like many of you I use the stuff in everything, and in the past I would occasionally roast some in the oven for particular uses, then I found myself saving some of the roasted cloves for a secondary particular use, and now I've gotten to the point where I roast many heads of garlic at a time just to keep them around and cook with in the future. I prefer the taste, texture, and ease of use to regular raw garlic.

To roast, I take the garlic heads, cut a little off the top so each clove is slightly exposed, then drizzle some olive oil and salt, pepper, and usually a little rosemary or thyme, then wrap that in foil and put in the oven at 400* for about an hour, or until the clove start to get soft and expand. Anybody have any other techniques?
