Roasted Garlic Bruschetta

2 full heads of garlic
1-2 Tablespoon good olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 loaf French bread, sliced long ways

Place garlic heads in a 2-quart casserole. Cover and bake in a preheated 350 oven for one hour. Remove casserole from oven and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine next six ingredients. Blend well. Cut off lower section of garlic heads and squeeze out cloves into bowl with cheese mixture. Try to get all the garlic out, don't waste any! Blend the garlic into the cheese mixture very well.

Spread 1/2 of the mixture on each half of French bread. Put bread on a broiling pan and broil until hot and bubbly. Slice diagonally into 2" pieces. Serve hot.
