To me, there is nothing better than pasta with fresh tomatoes!
I found a delicious new recipe last week with my handy dandy Whole Foods App!
After choosing the "On Hand" tab, I entered tomatoes and pasta.
This intriguing recipe popped up.
As usual, I didn't quite have all of the exact ingredients, but we made it work!
Everyone loved it and cleaned their plates!
Bonus: it's healthy, fresh, very economical, and easy!
Pasta with Brie, Basil and Tomatoes
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
8 ounces brie, with rind, or other semi-soft cheese such as Fontina, cut into (1-inch) pieces (or a bag of shredded of mozzarella because that's what in the frig!)
1/2 cup olive oil
3 to 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
1 pound whole wheat penne
1 cup basil leaves, torn (or generous sprinkles of dried basil because the fresh was forgotten at the store)
Put tomatoes, garlic, brie, oil, vinegar, salt and pepper into a large bowl and toss gently to combine. Cover and set aside at room temperature to let marinate for 2 to 3 hours. (1 hour will work too!)
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add penne and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain well and transfer hot pasta to bowl with tomato mixture. Add basil and toss gently to combine. Serve immediately.
