Fresh Tomato, Brie & Blue Pasta
FRESH TOMATO, BRIE & BLUE PASTA
1 1/2 pounds fresh tomatoes, seeded and coarsely chopped (I use Roma)
1/4 cup basil pesto
6 ounces Brie
2 ounces Stilton or other blue cheese
8 ounces thin spaghetti (I used whole wheat)
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Combine tomatoes and pesto in a large microwaveable casserole dish. Cut/crumble both cheeses into small pieces and mix in with tomato mixture. Meanwhile cook pasta according to package directions. Drain pasta and add to the casserole dish; mix well. Microwave for 2 or 3 minutes, until cheese is melted. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
Yield: 3 - 4 main dish servings
I love to eat this as a meatless meal, but for the hubby, I added a piece of grilled chicken coated with pesto. That's also a good way to make it more filling and/or eat less carbs, too.
