Tonight's Dinner: April 23, 2012
This weekend while planning my menu I had in mind all of my leftovers. One of the many things left over from my dinner with friends (which I did forget to take pictures of because I was having so much fun) was a giant round of brie. Bonnie was gracious enough to come over and finish off some wine, cheese and salami, I still found myself with a lot of brie. Thankfully for Allrecipes.com they had an awesome Fettuccini with Basil and Brie dish. The only thing I changed was to add 5 extra cloves of garlic and a tsp of red pepper flakes. Oh, and I added some broccoli because Nick loves it. Once the pasta was done cooking, we added the brie mixture and mixed it over the residual heat of the burner. The reviews were right. This recipe is awesome and I didn't waste any of my precious brie. Another plus is that Nick loves fettuccini alfredo, but it upsets his stomach. Brie does this less than a normal cream sauce so hopefully this will be our everyday fettuccini.
