Pasta with Tomatoes, Garlic, Basil, and Brie

Author Notes: My mother made this pasta, which originated from the Silver Palate Cookbook, every summer while I was growing up. It was only recently that I rediscove (…more) —Merrill Stubbs
Serves 6 as a main course

  • 3/4pound Brie (triple cream if you can get it)
  • 4medium ripe-as-can-be tomatoes
  • 2medium cloves garlic
  • 1/2cup loosely packed basil leaves, cleaned and dried
  • 1/2cup plus 2 tablespoons excellent olive oil
  • Kosher or sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1pound curly pasta (I like cavatappi)
  1. Put the Brie in the freezer for about 20 minutes to firm up a little. This will make it easier to cut when the time comes.                                                                                                                                                                      

  2. Roughly chop the tomatoes and put them in a large serving bowl. Finely chop the garlic and add it to the bowl. Chiffonade or roughly chop the basil and add that to the bowl too. Pour in the olive oil and add a generous amount of salt and pepper. Gently stir everything together.
  3. Once the Brie is firm enough, cut it into 1/2-inch cubes and add these to the bowl. Gently fold to combine the cheese with the rest of the ingredients. Cover the bowl and let it sit at room temperature for at least 2, and up to 8, hours -- the longer the better.
  4. When you are ready to eat, bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil and cook the pasta until just al dente. Strain it and tip it into the bowl with the sauce. Fold everything together until it is well combined, the Brie has begun to melt, and the pasta is slicked with cheese and tomato goodness. Serve immediately with a big green salad.          Source
