Cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and pasta: name a better trio, I’ll wait. Jokes aside, this dish really has the perfect balance between comfort food and a light summer meal. Furthermore, it is very easy to prepare, so you can make it even if you are a complete beginner and I can guarantee that it will be a major success among your family and friends. If you don’t happen to find Brie cheese in the store, feel free to use Camembert. And if you’re not a fan of matured cheeses, replace it with either mozzarella or maybe even feta. Lastly, if you don’t want to fuss with baking it wait or simply just don't like baked pasta, you can skip the baking part, it is delicious that way as well.
