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

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.

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.
