Brie and Pasta Recipe

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Additional Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Servings: 4-6


  • 8 oz (225g) of dried pasta (such as penne, fusilli, or farfalle)
  • 8 oz (225g) of brie cheese, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) of heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) of white wine or chicken broth
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup (30g) of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp (30ml) of fresh chopped parsley
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Steps to Cook:

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the dried pasta and cook according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain the pasta and set aside.

  2. In a large skillet or saucepan, combine the brie cheese, heavy cream, and white wine or chicken broth. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the brie has melted and the sauce is smooth, about 5-7 minutes.

  3. Add the minced garlic to the sauce and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly, until the garlic is fragrant.

  4. Add the cooked pasta to the sauce and toss to coat. Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese over the top and stir to combine.

  5. Season the pasta with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

  6. Garnish the pasta with the fresh chopped parsley.

  7. Serve the brie and pasta immediately, while it’s hot and the cheese is still melted.

Cook’s Note:

  • For a creamier sauce, you can add an extra 1/4 cup (60ml) of heavy cream to the sauce.
  • If the sauce is too thick, you can thin it out with a splash of the pasta cooking water.
  • You can use a variety of different types of pasta, such as penne, fusilli, or farfalle, depending on your preference.
  • If you prefer a more pronounced cheese flavor, you can use a stronger cheese, such as gorgonzola or blue cheese, instead of brie.
  • For a vegetarian version, you can omit the Parmesan cheese and use a vegetarian-friendly alternative, such as nutritional yeast or vegan Parmesan.
  • This dish can be served as a main course or as a side dish, and it pairs well with a fresh salad or garlic bread.
