  • 8 oz (225g) penne pasta
  • 4 oz (115g) brie cheese, rind removed and cubed
  • 1 cup (240ml) heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) dry white wine
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup (15g) freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp (30ml) unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp (5ml) fresh thyme leaves, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Chopped parsley, for garnish (optional)

Steps to Cook

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

  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the brie cheese, heavy cream, and white wine. 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 brie sauce and cook for an additional 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until the garlic is fragrant.

  4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the Parmesan cheese and butter until the butter has melted and the sauce is creamy.

  5. Add the cooked penne pasta to the brie sauce and toss to coat the pasta evenly. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

  6. Stir in the chopped thyme leaves.

  7. Serve the brie sauce pasta immediately, garnished with chopped parsley if desired.

Cook’s Note

  • For a richer, creamier sauce, you can use half-and-half or full-fat milk instead of heavy cream.
  • If the sauce is too thick, you can thin it out with a splash of the pasta cooking water.
  • Leftover brie sauce pasta can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat gently on the stovetop or in the microwave, adding a bit of milk or cream to loosen the sauce if needed.
  • To make this dish vegetarian, simply omit the Parmesan cheese or use a vegetarian-friendly alternative.
  • You can also add sautéed mushrooms, spinach, or sun-dried tomatoes to the pasta for extra flavor and nutrition.
