Preheat oven to 400°F.
Place separated garlic cloves in the middle of a sheet of foil. Drizzle with EVOO and season with salt and pepper. Wrap foil around the cloves creating a little pouch. Place in the oven until cloves soften and you smell the aroma of garlic, about 30-40 minutes.
Remove from the oven, let cool for 5-10 minutes so it is easy to handle, and squeeze garlic out from the skin.
