Foreplay Pasta with Brie, Basil, and Garlic


"It's really that good. Rich and decadent. If you really want to impress, then get a small block of Parmesan and grate it. Gives a better flavor than pre-grated."

  1. Mix Brie cheese, plum tomatoes, basil, 1/2 cup olive oil, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a bowl; cover bowl with plastic wrap and marinate for 2 hours.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add 1 tablespoon olive oil and 2 teaspoons salt. Cook bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain. Add pasta to cheese-tomato mixture; toss. Sprinkle pasta with Parmesan cheese.


  • Cook's Note:
  • To make as bruschetta, make as above and spoon onto slices of baguette and broil until cheese has just melted. Can also be served in bowl; allow guests to spoon mixture onto baguette slices and leave unwarmed.
