Brie and Green Chilie Sauce for Pasta

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by jennifer in new jer

I have not tried this yet but i cannot wait to this week. i got this recipe from "Sauces for Pasta" by Kristie Trabant and Andrea Chesman. It states that "the unusual combination of ingredients makes an exquisitely flavorful sauce. The cheese melts quickly, but it must be vigorously whisked into the sauce to blend well."

I loved this sauce - but changed it around a bit to suit the actual dish it would go on. I added a dozen or so cherry tomatoes to cook down. When they were cooked, I used a spoon to smash them to release the juices and flavor. I changed the brie to a few tablespoons of Reggiano Parmesan and melted it into the sauce. Overall, this is a major keeper now!
