"Simple, colorful, tantalizing side dish that goes beautifully with Factory Worker's Chicken! So good it can be used as a light main dish with a green salad and fruit." — TBASTIA

1 (12 ounce) package
bow tie pasta
2 (14.5 ounce) cans
Italian-style diced tomatoes
Brie cheese, cubed
chopped fresh basil
GREAT- BUT WITH MODIFICATIONS.
-Since you have to cut the skin off of the brie, use about 2x as much as is called for. Also, melt it in the microwave first to avoid curdling.
-Use about half as much pasta as is called for, or however much you desire- but the recommended amount is waaaaay too much.
-Season the canned tomatos to taste, or even add your own garden-fresh ones. Better produce makes better food.
Other than that, it's a great idea and works out well. The brie loses its sometime too strong flavor while maintaining its signature sweetness. Well done! =D
This was very bland
This was VERY easy and very much enjoyed by my all my dinner guests, including my vegetarian friend for whom it was chosen. I did add dried oregano and basil as I used all my fresh basil making pesto, and also added salt and pepper and about 3 pressed garlic cloves. Will definitely make again.
Excellent taste, quick and easy. Even my husband, who hates to try "new" things, loved it!!
This was a quick and easy dish to make, and it was much more flavorful than I expected it to be - I love brie cheese so now I have a great excuse to work it into dinner!
Quick and easy ... i cut the rind of the cheese, melted it in the micro first - then added to tomatoes.
Ick. This was too sweet and the flavors just didn't work well together. The brie took forever to melt too. Even after simmering the tomatoes and brie for 45 minutes, it still wasn't all melted!
Good, quick dish! I did agree with previous reviewers that it was a bit sweet by itself. However, paring it with a spinach salad and a glass of shiraz made it quite balanced overall. I disagree with other reviewers who say to increase the Brie or decrease the pasta. There is a distinct taste of Brie in the dish and I believe more would be too much. The amount of pasta is also just right. Cutting the pasta in half as one reviewer recommended would result in pasta floating in a sauce.
I made this dish in February. However, I think it would be best as a light dish during a cool summer evening. (A good option for those going for Meatless Mondays too.)
