Farfalle (Bow Ties) with Tomatoes and Brie

Farfalle (Bow Ties) with Tomatoes and Brie

«Farfalle» is the Italian name of the bow tie pasta with the lively shape of a butterfly («farfalla» in Italian). Because they «fly» from the plate to the mouth, they are among the kids' favourites.

360 calories per serving 


100 g farfalle (bow-tie), or other short pasta   1 1/2 cup
60 g brie cheese, rind removed, cut into small pieces    
2 tomatoes, Roma type, seeded and diced   140 g
1 clove garlic, minced    
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil   15 mL
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.


  1. To save time, the sauce preparation and the pasta cooking can be done at the same time. Start cooking the pasta.
  2. Meanwhile, remove and discard the Brie's rind, cut the cheese into pieces, then put them in a serving bowl and set aside in the oven at the lowest setting (cheese must melt without cooking).
  3. Seed and dice the tomatoes, mince the garlic, then add them to the cheese. Mix in the oil and add pepper to taste.
  4. Pour the drained farfalle into the serving bowl. Mix well. Adjust the seasoning and serve in the warmed dishes.
