What is Boursin Cheese?

Boursin is a soft and creamy, herb-studded cheese similar to cream cheese, but smoother and pre-seasoned with garlic, white pepper, salt, parsley, and chives. It’s super popular, so it’s easy to find in the deli section of the supermarket.

What’s in Boursin Pasta?

CHEESE: Boursin melts smooth and easy into the chicken stock and heavy cream. Feta, cream cheese, and gorgonzola would also work as substitutes.

PASTA: Choose medium-sized pasta shapes with ridges or tubes to hold all that delicious sauce! Penne, rotini, bowtie, or bucatini are great choices.

VEGETABLES: Colorful peas and tomatoes give this dish an elegant look despite how easy it is to make! Try broccoli florets, cherry tomatoes, sliced mushrooms, asparagus, or spinach for tasty variations.

How to Make Boursin Cheese Pasta

This easy dish comes together in no time!

  1. Prepare pasta and reserve some pasta water.

PRO TIP: Don’t rinse the pasta so it stays a little starchy which helps thicken the sauce.

  2. Stir in the remaining ingredients (per the recipe below).

Extras and Add-Ins

Add some juicy meatballs, or serve with some homemade bread sticks, a crispy cucumber radish salad, and a simple, baked fruit crisp for dessert!

Leftover Pasta

Keep leftover Boursin cheese pasta in a covered container in the fridge up to 4 days. Reheat over low heat on the stove (add some milk to loosen the sauce) or in the microwave.

Portions can be frozen for up to 4 weeks, however, the pasta won’t be as firm once it’s thawed. Simply add fresh pasta to improve the texture. Or better yet, since this recipe is so quick and easy to make, simply cook a fresh batch!
