This easy recipe for pasta with Brie and tomatoes is a summertime classic, full of the flavors of cheese and basil and sweet tomato!


  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 23 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 23 large tomatoes, cut into chunks
  • 68 ounces Brie cheese, rind removed and torn into pieces
  • 1/2 cup basil, chopped
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • 8 ounces pasta (I like linguine for this recipe, but any shape will do)


  1. Pour oil into a large bowl, and add garlic, tomatoes, cheese, basil and a grinding of fresh pepper.  Cover with a dish towel and let marinate for at least an hour.
  2. Cook pasta in salted water according to package directions.  Drain and add to the bowl.  Toss everything with tongs until the cheese has just started to melt.
  3. Divide among bowls and serve at once.  Twirl around your fork.  Be very happy.
