    MMmmmm, Satay pasta! YUM! I have made this and you can find the viniagrette in the dressing aisle - however - whenever I decide to make it I never have any on hand so I make the reicpe on the bottle of Asian seasoning.

    Brie...seems like there was one in SB fall of '07 that had jalapenos in it..I'll see if I can find the right recipe and post it.

    The Pampered Chef ®
    Tangy Pepper-Pecan Brie

    1/2 cup pecan halves
    1 jalapeño pepper, stemmed and seeded
    1/4 cup apricot preserves
    1 4-inch round (8 ounces) Brie cheese with rind, room temperature
    1 loaf (16 ounces) French baguette
    Vegetable oil

    Preheat oven to 425°F. Coarsely chop pecans using Chef's Knife. Chop jalapeño using Food Chopper. In Small Batter Bowl, combine jalapeño and preserves; mix well using Skinny Scraper.

    Cut Brie in half horizontally using Utility Knife. Place one half of Brie, cut side up, onto center of Large Round Stone. Spread half of the apricot mixture evenly over bottom half of Brie using Small Spreader. Top with half of the pecans and remaining half of Brie, cut side up. Spread remaining apricot mixture over Brie; sprinkle with remaining pecans.

    Using Bread Knife, cut baguette on a bias into twenty-four 1/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange baguette slices around Brie; spray with oil using Kitchen Spritzer. Bake 8-10 minutes or until baguette slices are golden brown and Brie begins to soften. Remove from oven; let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serve using Bamboo Spreader.

    Brown Sugar Dijon Brie is my favorite and uses pretty normal ingredients that I always have in my house, other than the brie.

    I love the Satay Chicken Pasta Salad. It's a favorite of mine. I use the Asian dressing on the MMP. Otherwise, I've found the Lite Asian Dressing at the grocery store. I think it was Kraft, but I didn't see any the last time I looked.

    Anyone try substituting the Thai Peanut Sauce in the Satay Chicken Pasta Salad recipe? in place of the dressing, seasoning mix and maybe peanut butter?

    Wishbone makes an Asian vinegrette that tastes great for the Satay pasta salad. I've tried the "Ken's" brand when I couldn't find the Wishbone one, but didn't care for it as much.
