Brie, Bacon and Basil Pasta

This is one of those recipes that my hubby wouldn't like because of the brie.  So what do I do?  I tell my mom I am taking over her kitchen and making her dinner!  How can you say no to that?

{Brie, Bacon and Basil Pasta}

{Cooking the bacon}

{Getting my mise en place together}

{Browning the onions and garlic}

{Adding cooked pasta}

{Add brie and milk, heating until brie melts}

{Stir basil in right before serving}

Brie, Bacon and Basil Pasta

Serves 4

1/2 pound bacon, chopped
1 small onion, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
7 oz brie, cubed
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
10 basil leaves, chopped
8 oz dried pasta
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. In a large saute pan, heat bacon on medium high heat until cooked.
  3. Turn heat up to medium-high and add garlic and onions; saute until bacon is crisp and onions and garlic have a nice brown color to them.
  4. Add cooked pasta to bacon mixture and stir to combine.
  5. Add brie, milk and pepper to pasta mixture and turn heat down to medium.
  6. Cook until cheese is melted.
  7. Right before service, throw in the basil and stir to combine.
  8. Serve (with a basil garnish if you want to get fancy!).
This recipe will utilize some of that basil growing in your garden, just like it did at mom's.  This recipe was delicious and quick!

PS--Thanks mom!
