Brie, Bacon, and Basil Pasta

I'm not a huge pasta fan but this is fantastic. How can one go wrong with brie and bacon? I made this a few weeks ago and it was hideous, but I had one taste and knew I had to make it again just so I can rave about it.

It's so simple too. Just fry up some bacon til crispy and cut into small pieces. Meanwhile, boil some pasta (linguini/angel hair preferable because bigger noodles require more sauce, and brie is expensive) and drain, reserving some pasta water for the sauce. For the sauce, fry up a little garlic and onions, then melt in some brie, adding pasta water to help thin it and let it melt smoothly. Stir in bacon pieces and cooked pasta, then add basil, salt, and pepper to taste. 

Would I make this again? Yes, I don't like repetition yet I could eat this each week. It's that good.
