  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook orecchietta pasta in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and transfer pasta to a casserole dish.

  • Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir asparagus in the melted butter until slightly tender, about 5 minutes. Spread asparagus over pasta layer.

  • Pour cream over asparagus and pasta; season with salt and black pepper. Arrange Brie cheese chunks in the pasta mixture; sprinkle top with bread crumbs.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and bread crumbs are lightly browned, 20 to 30 minutes.

I used olive oil to sauté the asparagus instead of butter and wish I would have taken the outside of the Brie off. It gave it a weird taste cuz I love Brie and I could have left the bread crumbs off. And it needed more pepper. I used no salt at all I would make it again. My 6 yr old loved it Read More
