Caprese Pasta w/ Brie…And I Make It Gluten-Free!

THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. PLEASE READ MY DISCLOSURE FOR MORE INFO.


I have my mother-in-law to thank for this delicious recipe. It’s been in her family for years, and she was gracious enough to share it with me so that I can share it with YOU!

Since I usually avoid gluten and cow’s milk, I make this recipe with Cybele’s Free-To-Eat Superfood Veggie Pasta and goat’s milk brie, which you can find at Trader Joe’s!

To read why I avoid the A1 beta-casein found in cow’s milk, read my prior post “Is Milk Bad For You? The Dairy Debate Explained.”

You can find Cybele’s pasta at many grocery stores, on Amazon, and on thrivemarket.com. Don’t be fooled by the fact that it’s made exclusively from veggies; it’s so tasty that you won’t even notice!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh basil torn
  • 4 large tomatoes (or 6 small) chopped
  • 1 pound Brie cheese* rind cut off and chopped
  • 3-4 garlic cloves minced
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound pasta**
  • 1/2 cup fresh Paremsan cheese* grated

Instructions

  • Add basil, tomatoes, Brie, garlic, EVOO, salt, and pepper to large bowl. Mix all together and set aside. 
  • Cook pasta according to instructions on box. Strain.
  • Pour warm pasta over ingredients in large bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes so that warm pasta melts Brie.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan, serve (warm or cold), and enjoy!

Notes

*I use Brie and Parmesan made from goat/sheep's milk. To read why I avoid the A1 beta-casein found in cow's milk, read my prior post "Is Milk Bad For You? The Dairy Debate Explained."
**When I make this recipe, I use gluten-free pasta. My favorite brand is Cybele's Free-To-Eat Superfood Veggie Pasta, which you can find at many grocery stores, on Amazon, and on thrivemarket.com.
