    this was very tasty!! be sure to have everything chopped and ready to go when you drain the pasta....the brie will melt completely with the heat. i don't care for the mold, so i remove it. i also add 1/2 cup of pasta water to my cooked pastas does make a difference.

    I just made this quick recipe for dinner and will now consider it a true "go-to" for everyday meals and for entertaining. The simple ingredients would never hint at the depth of flavor, but the meal was truly delicious. I used heirloom tomatoes, which I think are especially key in a recipe like this where they are one of only a few ingredients. While any pasta would work, the orecchiette was great for creating little bowls to carry more of the yummy sauce to your mouth. In sum: I'm going to file this one under "Easy and delicious!"

    So easy. Amazing flavor. Easiest gourmet weeknight meal! We served this with green beans and crusty bread.

    This is such an excellent, tasty, easy, and fun dish. I never thought brie cheese would work so well with tomato and basil (my absolute favorite combo in the world!) but it really does. Although brie cheese can be heavy, the 1/4 cup of it makes for a light dish and this pasta can be served either hot or cold. It had rave reviews from my three roommates and I will definitely be making this dish again!
