Brie Spaghetti

Ingredients: – 8 oz (225g) spaghetti or pasta of your choice – 6 oz (170g) Brie cheese, rind removed and cubed – 2 tablespoons unsalted butter – 2 cloves garlic, minced

– 1/2 cup heavy cream – 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese – Salt and pepper, to taste – Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish (optional)

Cook Pasta:  Cook the spaghetti according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside, reserving about 1/2 cup of pasta water.

Prepare Brie Sauce: While the pasta is cooking, prepare the Brie sauce. In a large skillet or saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.

Add Brie and Cream: Add the cubed Brie cheese to the skillet, stirring constantly until the cheese starts to melt and become creamy. Pour in the heavy cream, and continue stirring until the Brie is fully melted and the sauce is smooth and creamy.

Combine Pasta and Sauce: Add the cooked spaghetti to the skillet with the Brie sauce. Toss the pasta with the sauce until it's well coated, adding a splash of reserved pasta water if needed to loosen the sauce.

Cook Sauce: Bring the sauce to a gentle simmer, then reduce the heat to low. Let the sauce simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, to allow the flavors to meld and the sauce to thicken slightly.

Season and Serve: Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese, and season the Brie spaghetti with salt and pepper to taste. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if necessary.

Garnish and Serve: Remove the skillet from the heat. Serve the Brie spaghetti hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.

Enjoy: This Brie spaghetti is rich, creamy, and indulgent, perfect for a special occasion or a cozy dinner at home. Serve it with a side salad and a glass of white wine for a complete meal.
