I know, the title of this alone makes you think "heart attack on a plate." What a way to go! It is artery clogging, but once in a blue moon it's nice to indulge a bit! The sauce is utterly rich and lucious thanks to the melted Brie!

Just the sort of dish that pleases a cheese addicted person like myself, add the bacon and you can't go wrong! Love these flavors and in my opinion it is not as rich as a Carbonara Pasta. The second time I made it I added a small onion, garlic, more broth and also fresh chopped parsley. Thanks Mark for a quick and tasty pasta dish.

Love it! Love brie, the stinkier, the better! Made 1/2 the recipe for the 2 of us, no leftovers. Added some parsley on top for visual and health effect.
