Serves 4


  • 340g linguine or tagliatelle, broken in half
  • 1 cup packed basil leaves
  • 1 cup roasted red capsicum, chopped coarsely
  • 1/2 cup sundried tomatoes in oil, sliced
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 4 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (you can use the oil from the sundried tomato jar)
  • 1 tbsp salt, plus extra for seasoning
  • Pinch red chilli flakes
  • Black pepper
  • 250g brie cheese
  • Parmesan, grated for serving
  • Olive oil, for serving


  1. Combine linguine, basil, capsicum, sundried tomatoes and garlic in a sauté pan (or skillet pan). Add water, oil, salt, chilli flakes, and a generous amount of black pepper and bring to a boil over a high heat.
  2. Using tongs, stir and turn pasta frequently to prevent sticking. Cook until al dente (roughly 10 minutes). Remove from heat. (If there is still some cooking water, pour a portion — not all — into a separate bowl.)
  3. Add brie to pasta, tossing with tongs until melted and creamy. The sauce will naturally thicken after a couple of minutes.
  4. Season with additional salt and pepper, to taste. If you feel the pasta needs a little bit of liquid to lift it, add some of that reserved cooking liquid.
  5. Serve with Parmesan and a swirl of olive oil.
