I go off smell and each ingredient doesn't smell like it would be that great together but oh my gosh, it does and it tastes even better :) This is a light, healthy dish and I recommend it. It only took the amount of time to cook the pasta and while that was cooking I had all the ingredients prepared. I also put in a little Parmesan in it and I think next time I'm going to put baked chicken slices in for some meat.
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!
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 ....it 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!"
