Fettuccini with Basil and Brie

Recipe by  

"Tomatoes and basil together are a sure hit! Very flavorful. For cheese lovers, try a stronger Brie cheese, otherwise a medium blend will do. Great served warm or cold."

I scaled back to 4 servings. Used only a pinch of black pepper and fresh picked roma tomatoes. I love brie and this adds a wonderful flavor to this dish! The second time I made this pasta, I used penne, which made it easier to eat! Added fresh roma and heirloom tomatoes! Soooo Good!!

I would give this 3 1/2 stars. It did quite have the punch I expected it to have. I cut the oil in half added about half of a pint of halved grape tomatoes and used a half of a head of roasted garlic from a recipe I found from this site. I'm glad I added the extra garlic otherwise it would have been to lifeless. I think I'll stick to making bruschetta and adding that over pasta.

I got a similar recipe from a newspaper. It's really good without the wine vinegar, just a little more olive oil and use rotini instead of fettuccini - it catches the flavors better. In addition, I used one wedge of regular brie and one herbed one. YUMMY!!! And if you are a garlic lover like me, add more!

I LOVE this recipe with a few changes. I saute the garlic because I don't like it raw, to which I add some chopped onion and some red pepper flakes. I substitute balsamic vinegar for the red wine vinegar. I never would have thought that brie would would work so well with pasta!

"AWSOME" this is the pasta i've been looking for, has a taste all of it's own. Not your typical alfredo pasta. I love it and so does my family. Thanks Lisa for our new favorite!!!! If you don't try it you are missing out on something great.

This pasta is UNBELIEVABLE. I couldn't believe that something so easy could taste so good. This is fine dining at home. 5 stars

Awesome. I'll likely roast or saute the garlic next time. It was a bit strong. Great summer dish to use basil and tomatoes from the garden.
