    1. In a large bowl combine chopped tomatoes, minced garlic, brie, chopped basil, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Mix well and let stand at room temperature.
    2. In a large pot of boiling salted water over high heat, cook the fettuccine until al dente, about 12 minutes.

    Parmesan cheese

    Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.

    First thing I've cooked from scratch, like ever!!! I picked this cos it looked fairly easy and yummy and yes it was both those things. I cooked for my boyfriend and his mum and they thought it was delicious. Although it would have been better if I hadn't made too little of the stuff xD - 28 May 2009
