This pasta dish uses rich, creamy brie to make the summery combination of tomatoes and basil even better.
Ingredients: 
  • 5 tomatoes, cored and roughly chopped or 2 cups halved cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces brie, with rind, or other semi-soft cheese such as Fontina, cut into (1-inch) pieces
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 pound whole wheat penne
  • 1 cup basil leaves, torn
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Method: 
Put tomatoes, garlic, brie, oil, vinegar, salt and pepper into a large bowl and toss gently to combine. Cover and set aside at room temperature to let marinate for 2 to 3 hours.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add penne and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain well and transfer hot pasta to bowl with tomato mixture. Add basil and toss gently to combine. Serve immediately.
