Hot pasta is tossed with a fresh-tasting sauce that includes tomatoes, basil and Brie cheese in this deliciously different dish. It's very pretty, too. Even when it cools off, this pasta tastes great. -Diann Mallehan, Grand Rapids, Michigan

"This was OK. It wasn't as flavorful as I thought it might be."

"I've been making this dish for years. A quicker and easier version uses canned diced tomatoes, chopped garlic, olive oil

basil pesto or fresh basil, and shredded
Parmesan cheese. Good with linguini or fettuccine. Tastes great hot or cold!"

"I would make this again, but I wouldn't use the brie, I don't care for this cheese. When I eat a pasta dish like this, I use fresh mozzarella or asagio cheese, also fontina cheese."
