Baked Brie Pasta

Baked Feta Pasta is all the rage, but I’ve got another recipe option for the cheese-obsessed: Baked Brie Pasta with cherry tomatoes and thyme.

Never have I ever loved a good TikTok viral recipe quite like Baked Feta Pasta. Once I shared my spin on the popular dish, I received countless requests for a version starring a cheese other than feta.

For all of my not-so-feta fans out there, this Baked Brie Pasta is for you!

Much like its culinary cousin, the setup on this recipe is simple, straightforward, and most importantly, requires just five ingredients.

Dump, stir, roast, toss, devour.

Did I mention this all takes place in a single baking dish (and a pot for your pasta)? So not only do we have minimum grocery shopping, we also have minimum dishes, and that is a major win in this mom’s book.

If you’re not feeling the pasta variation, swap carbs and consider this a dip. Crusty baguette would be a very welcome addition for dunking.

    I like the idea, but the Brie really liquifies and does not make a nice creamy sauce like the original feta version of this recipe. I tried adding a little cream to it but there was really no sauce at all. We used a nice triple cream Brie, but sadly it did not work out for us.

  2. 5 stars
    I added some extra Italian spices and red pepper flakes as well as liberal amounts of chopped garlic because we like a bit of bite. Thanks for emphasizing the need to cut the brie.. I actually just cut the wheel in half and popped both halves in to bake, open side up. The cheese was brown and bubbly. I mushed the finished dish up with a potato masher to “pop” the tomatoes and let the mixture sit for a couple of minutes before stirring in the pasta…. very good dish! I didn’t have any fresh basil but that would have been great to add when serving, and some grated parmesan would have put it over the top. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I was looking for something like this to use up some brie and needed proof it would work!

  3. I am confused, the top brie part that I’ve set aside, what to do with it? Put in the the refrigerator and hope to find a purpose for it?

    1. Hi there! Cutting the top off ensures the center gets melted. However, you can try leaving it on, you may just have to increase the baking time slightly.

  4. Recipe- times and video are all conflicting. Total time says 30 mins= 5 prep 25 cook.
    Yet step 4. Says “Bake until the rind has softened and the cheese is melted, about 35 minutes.” Instruction says preheat oven at 350 yet video says 400. It minor but those details should be fixed.

    This could have been so much better if seasoned more. I added garlic, and some pesto, along with some spinach. It definitely needed some help, as Brie is a very mild tasting cheese. It was good, but I doubt I’ll make it again.

    1. Hi Barbara! I have never made this recipe in a microwave so I’m not sure how that would work. Sorry I can’t help!

    1. I did this and the cheese didn’t melt correctly. I was left with chunks of cheese instead of something able to be blended with pasta. Use feta instead.

      1. Hi Lacey – I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy the recipe. What brand of Brie did you use and did you cut the top off?

    1. I added Italian seasoning, garlic seasoning and red chili pepper flakes which were great, plus 2 tablespoons of the pasta water, I think more tomatoes would be better.

    Love this recipe! My husband and I have made this multiple times. It’s so easy and is packed with flavor!

  8. 3 stars
    Loved how easy this was! Think next time I’ll get rid of the rind completely as it was a tad bitter for me and a little watery not sure what I did wrong but I will make this again! It’s delicious! Crusty bread was the perfect addition!

  9. I can’t get a hold of Feta block in groceries around me so this is a good recipe to try. :)
    Only problem that I have is I can’t find fresh thyme. Will it be okay if I use dried thyme?

    1. Absolutely! However, because dried herbs are more potent and concentrated than fresh herbs, I’d recommend using only 1/4 teaspoon.

  10. This turned out much better than I expected! I cut the top and placed it on the side, turned out crispy and was soo good! Definitely making it again, so quick n easy

  11. 4 stars
    Loved this recipe, however, I added 7-8 cloves of garlic, chopped finely. It really adds the perfect flavour…we LIVE garlic!

    I wouldn’t dare get rid of the rind so when I did cut off the top I placed it underneath the bottom and it was absolutely delightful! Not a huge fan of feta so this was a great alternative and we also sprinkled a little bacon on top because you can’t go wrong with that.

  13. O my goodness this is delicious and the so easy .thank you very very much Kelly . We notice this recipe when watching the ABC .then looked on line and found your recipe . It was amazing . Stay safe , Anna .

    This turned out great! I cut off the top of the Brie, and when it was done baking I scraped out the cheese and threw away the rind. Added some extra mozzarella for some added gooey goodness. Definitely will make again.

  15. I just finished making this dish!!! I added a few ingredients and I used red potatoes instead of pasta (im not big on pasta)
    It came out amazing!!!!!
    Awesome recipe!

        Came out good! I added fresh minced garlic and swapped thyme because I had fresh rosemary. Only thing was it came out watery I’m not sure why

    It came out pretty good. The Brie cheese was a nice change. I think next time I will remove the top & bottom of the cheese. The rind left a slightly bitter taste.

  17. 5 stars
    Hey! I’m glad I found your recipe. I’ve been wanting to try this exact thing. Would it be bad to remove the whole rind? I never eat it.

    The bottom rind was just one big rubbery clump. The Brie didn’t coat the pasta—there were just bits and pieces of it throughout. I might use a very good quality of Brie next time. Very easy dish but nothing special.

    1. I had the same experience w the Feta. It looked like cottage cheese and not melty. Might need better quality cheese. My Brie is in the oven now so hoping for better results.

    1. Hi Jamie! You can leave the rind on the bottom and sides of the Brie as it will become soft enough to mix with the tomatoes. :)

    This recipe is amazing. My husband who never has a reaction to food said he loved it. Kids did, too. Super easy to put together, this is a keeper.

    This was fantastic! Loved the addition of fresh thyme. Served it with warm, crusty bread instead of pasta. A keeper!
