  • Oil of olives

 

  • Citrus Tomatoes

 

  • Chopped Garlic

 

  • When cooking pasta, I prefer to use short noodles like rigatoni, farfalle, or penne.

  • Parmesan cheese and basil for serving and garnishing

 

  • Baking Dish – To bake the tomatoes with Boursin Cheese, use an 8×8 or 9×9 cooking dish.

  1. Bake – Bake the tomatoes and cheese in the oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the tomatoes are roasted and starting to burst and the cheese is golden brown and melting.

  1. Prepare Pasta – In the meantime, prepare the pasta until it is al dente. Don’t forget to save aside some of the water from the starchy pasta.
  2. Prepare Sauce – Take the baking dish with the Boursin out of the oven. Stir the tomatoes and Boursin together until the tomatoes are fully “popped.” When the correct consistency is obtained, add the cooked pasta and gradually add the saved pasta water.

 

  1. To serve, top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and fresh basil, if using.

Variations

  • Fresh Herbs – You can mince up some fresh herbs and add them to the sauce if you have any on hand. Fresh parsley and basil would be fantastic!

 

  • Fresh Spinach – Add some finely chopped baby spinach to the hot pasta and sauce for an extra vegetable boost. Stir until the spinach wilts.

 

  • Include a Protein – Try serving cooked chicken or shrimp on top of the pasta.

Leftovers and Storage

I advise eating the Boursin Cheese Pasta immediately after making it because of the sauce’s richness. However, leftovers can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Be warned that the sauce may slightly ‘crack’ and split when you reheat it, but it will still taste excellent.

Recipe Tips

  • Pasta Water – Using the pasta water that has been set aside is essential for creating a creamy sauce that coats the pasta. I like to set aside more than I’ll need, then gradually add more until the right consistency is achieved.

 

  • Double the dish – Although this dish feeds 3–4 people, it is simple to multiply it by 2 to feed a large group. The biggest modification is that you’ll require a bigger baking dish of Boursin Cheese Pasta.
