I'm sorry but the small pieces of semi-melted brie floating in my sauce did nothing to enhance the flavor or make it special. Read More

Wow! I just loved this dish. I didn't have fresh basil so I added dried basil and fresh parsley. I also sauteed cubed chicken in olive oil garlic and italian herbs on the side and added at the end. One note - you have to remove ALL of the brie rind otherwise it won't melt and will leave floating bits of rind in your sauce. Read More

That's pretty good:) Thanks. I will make again. I love a cheesy sauce. However I don't love saucy cheese. To the review that reported there were cheese lumps in her sauce... cheese melts duh! Read More

I had this same recipe last night at a friend's home. However it was served at room temperature (do not simmer to melt cheese!) Served as a topping for sliced crusty bread. A bruchetta of sorts. Cube the brie seed the tomatoes & dice mince the garlic drizzle with olive oil add fresh chpd basil salt & pepper. Set at room temperature for 2 hours before serving in an open dish with sliced small ovals/rounds of bread. Delicious! Read More
