    I'm wondering what some of the HTF's favorite recipes are.

    During the summer I love Brie Pasta:

    Chop three fresh tomatoes into a bowl. Add about a half pound of chopped Brie cheese, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Dump in one pound of "short" pasta (I like Farfalle), and stir (to clarify, this should be COOKED pasta! The heat from the pasta will melt the cheese). Once the cheese has melted a bit add a chiffonaded handful of basil and enjoy.

    Anyone else have a great recipe they want to share?

    mmmmmmmmm...this is a Vegetarian recipe? I know it's not Vegan, sounds simple and yummy, but you didn't tell us how the cheese melts, bake?

    It's vegetarian, no meat there!

    The cheese melts from the residual heat in the pasta. Brie is pretty soft, so it doesn't need a lot of help. Very quick and easy!

    of the strawberry preserves, then with 1 cup of the whipped cream; sprinkle

    remaining strawberry preserves.

    Absolutely delightful...but also fattening, so treat yourself sparingly. When I make it, I like to skip on the pecans as a matter of taste but either way, it's fabulous.
