Bruschetta Brie Pasta has the perfect blend of tomatoes, garlic, and brie. A perfect summertime pasta dish.
The summer has been busy for us so far. Not busy is a bad way, but busy in a good way. We are either having playdates, or heading out to do something, visiting friends, going for BBQ’s etc, etc. This past weekend we visited a friends’ cottage about an hour ad a half from our town. The boys had so much fun. They went out on the lake on a paddle boat, went tubing, ran around the outdoors, chased snakes around (yuk!), and just had an all around great time.
While we were having snacks something scary happened though. I was sitting outside on the patio with the other adults, the kids came around to grab a bite to eat. Suddenly my little guy Emmett who is 5 starts tugging on my arm and he has tears in his eyes, but couldn’t speak. I wasn’t sure what was happening at first so I asked him if he was choking and he nodded…He was Choking!! I jumped out of my seat and quickly gave him the Heimlich maneuver. He coughed and cleared out the watermelon and nachos that he was choking on.
Luckily a nurse friend was there too, because I almost blanked out on what to do.
We were over an hour away from any kind of medical help. This sure was a reminder to everyone to brush up on their cpr/first aid training.
If you haven’t had any training or have a foggy memory of it, you should really brush up on it. You never know when something can happen. It was so scary, but luckily all turned out well.
Anyhow, I have got a great summery recipe for you guys today.
Cooking dinner in the summer can sometimes be such a pain. Especially when it’s nice out and you’re enjoying the day outdoors.
That’s why I think you guys are going to love this recipe. It’s actually super quick and easy, but it presents so well. It looks like a gourmet meal, but it doesn’t take much longer than a box of mac and cheese to make.
I personally like white wine, so I think that a chilled summery white wine would be perfect with this meal. I’m kind of regretting not thinking of that last night. Bummer. Oh well, next time.
Try out the recipe below. I promise you’ll love it.
I love fresh heirloom tomatoes. They are so colourful and bright.
The brie cheese starting to melt on the pasta looks so good. Actually, it was so good. This pasta is a must try.
