Heirloom Tomato, Basil, & Brie Pasta

It may officially be Fall, but it’s still tomato season!  This dish accentuates the wonderful heirloom tomatoes and fresh basil.  The warm noodles will slightly melt the brie cheese creating a creamy, delicious pasta.  It’s easy to make, perfect for a meal or a side dish, and can be served warm or at room temperature.

Add garlic, tomatoes, basil, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese in a large bowl.  Stir to incorporate ingredients being careful not to crush the tomatoes.  Add salt and pepper to taste. Cut (or pull apart with your fingers) the brie into small pieces and add to bowl.

Cook pasta according to package.  I prefer using a wider noodle, such as linguine, but any shape pasta will work. Drain pasta and let cool for a couple minutes.  While pasta is still warm, add to bowl and toss with tomatoes.
