Baked Brie Pasta

Posted on

Looking to switch up your pasta game from the TikTok-famous feta version? Why not try a twist with creamy brie instead? This pasta is all about that melty brie goodness, paired with earthy mushrooms, sweet shallots, and crispy bacon—like the sophisticated cousin of feta pasta.

Customize it:

The beauty of this recipe lies in its flexibility. Try rosemary instead of thyme, parsley instead of basil, or swap pine nuts for pecans. Don’t hesitate to use your favorite mushrooms, too.

Choosing the right brie:

Brie can be divisive, but we recommend a triple cream variety for its mild, buttery taste. Before baking, slice off the top rind to reveal the creamy interior. Leave a border to maintain its shape and prevent overcooking.

Pro Prep Tips:

  • Start boiling water while prepping ingredients to save time.
  • Cook pasta slightly under to avoid mushiness after baking.
  • Opt for pasta shapes like trumpet or fusilli for a forgiving texture.

Serve this indulgent pasta with a fresh salad and crusty bread. Leftovers store well for up to 5 days in the fridge or 6 months in the freezer.
