This is a crowd pleaser. The fresh basil makes all the difference..
4 large tomatoes, chopped
1 pound Brie cheese, coarsely chopped
5 garlic cloves, peeled, minced
1 cup chopped fresh basil
1 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
6 quarts water
1/8 teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoon salt
1 1/2 pounds uncooked linguine
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Combine tomatoes, Brie cheese, garlic, basil, 1 cup olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in bowl; mix well. Let stand, covered, for 1 hour or longer.
Bring water to a boil in large saucepan. Stir in 1/8 teaspoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon salt. Add linguine. Cook for 8–10 minutes or until firm; drain. Toss hot linguine with tomato mixture in bowl. Brie will melt into pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and fresh pepper. Yields 6 servings.
