Recipe: Broccoli, Brie and Bacon Trivelle

Recently I stumbled upon Foodgawker and have found so many delicious things I’ve wanted to cook. I can’t believe I didn’t know it existed before now, people are making some amazing things and Foodgawker has all of it! I’ve started trying out a lot more things now because of it. Some have turned out well (like the Cookies and Cream Smoothie) and some not so well (like the 3 ingredient ‘icecream’) but it’s been fun just trying new things all the same.

One of the things I saw was a Broccoli pasta for 2 from Pinch and Swirl that looked interesting and easy. Originally, it had Walnuts in it… I decided to switch these out for Bacon and added a bit of minced garlic which ended up very tasty.

Most times that I’ve made this, I’ve put the Brie in a bit earlier and let it get all gooey and mix in with the other ingredients but this time around left it to later and didn’t allow it to melt quite as much. I think it had more flavour this way, even though I used less cheese than previous times.

The best thing about this recipe is that you can prep it all while your pasta is cooking. I place my pasta and water in the bottom of my steamer and steam the Broccoli on top which works fairly well.
