Ingredients

150 g gluten free/wheat free penne 2 cups
80 g brie cheese, rind removed, cut into small pieces
2 tomatoes, seeded and diced 240 g
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 23 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

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.

Method

  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 penne into the serving bowl. Mix well. Adjust the seasoning and serve in the warmed dishes.

Being allergic to all dairy, I used Daiya Cheese Substitute, but I like it better using Tofutti Non-Dairy Cream Cheese substitute instead. I love the flavor of the garlic and tomato with the creaminess of the cheese.. it isn't over cooked, but it isn't raw either. I would turn the oven up a little more to melt the Daiya cheese, as having the oven on the lowest setting at 170 degrees Farenheit wasn't quite hot enough. I might be easier to melt it on a pot on the stove in order to keep an eye on it.
