–While pasta cooks, remove rind from brie and cut into 1 inch pieces.
–Remove pasta mixture from heat, * add the brie and mix until melted into a creamy sauce. Then add spinach and stir in to wilt.
* Depending on the starchiness of your pasta you may have too much water left at the end of cooking. You can ladle it out, leaving about 1/2 to 1 cup (depending on taste) to help form the sauce.
