I have adjusted the recipe based on some reviewers feedback. Reviews are my favorite part of finding recipes online... someone else has always made edits that benefit the rest of us! :) The reviews here said cut back the brie. It recommends 8 ounces- but I cut back to 6 ounces (based on feedback). This recipe is meatless and easy!
- 8 ounces spaghetti
- 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 bunch broccoli (about 1 1/4 pounds), cut into 1/2-inch flowerets,;reserving stems for another use
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 6 ounces Brie, rind discarded, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped coarse
In a 6-quart kettle bring 5 quarts salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook until al dente. Reserve 1/3 cup cooking liquid and drain pasta in a colander. Return pasta to kettle with reserved liquid.
While pasta is cooking, in a large heavy skillet heat oil over moderate heat until hot but not smoking and cook broccoli with salt to taste, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until golden, about 30 seconds.
To pasta add broccoli mixture, Brie, and walnuts, tossing until cheese is just melted, and season with salt and pepper.
I will let you know what I thought of this recipe tomorrow. Give it a shot! Until next time...xoxo
