1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes quartered
4-5 cloves garlic minced
1 lb brie, with rind removed torn into (1-inch) pieces
3/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp salt
½ tsp ground pepper
1 pound penne pasta
1 cup fresh basil leaves julienned

Put tomatoes, garlic, brie, oil, salt and pepper into a large bowl and toss gently to combine. Cover and set aside at room temperature to let marinate for 2 to 3 hours.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add penne and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes. Drain well (don’t rinse) and transfer hot pasta to bowl with tomato mixture. Add basil and toss gently to combine. Serve immediately.

Oh, yum! I adore pasta, but don't eat it very often. Wish they made pasta without carbs. :(
