Boursin pasta in a dish

After creating my own baked Greek pasta recipe based on the viral TikTok feta pasta recipe, I started dreaming about other delicious pasta ideas. I love the simplicity of adding veggies, cheese, and pasta to a pan and creating an incredible main dish in minutes. If it works with feta… why stop there? I decided to try this with Boursin cheese and I was thrilled with the results!

What is Boursin Cheese?

Boursin cheese is technically a Gournay cheese, mixed with herbs and spices. Boursin is the brand that popularized this creamy, crumbly cheese made from cow’s milk. So Boursin isn’t really a type of cheese, rather, it’s a brand that makes a variety of Gournay cheeses. But since most people refer to it as Boursin, I called this recipe Boursin pasta!

What’s the Best Boursin Cheese for this Recipe?

I recommend using the garlic and herb Boursin, which has the perfect flavor profile for this pasta dish. They recently created a dairy-free version of this popular cheese, so if you want to make it without dairy, look for this cheese!

What’s the Best Type of Pasta for this Recipe?

I like to use short, tubular pasta such as ziti, penne, or cavatappi. You can use any pasta you have on hand, but the shorter pasta shapes are easier to mix with the cheese and tomatoes. You can use gluten-free pasta or chickpea pasta if you prefer. I used Banza’s rotini noodles in this recipe!

How to Make Boursin Pasta

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the pasta according to the package directions.

Remove the Boursin cheese from the wrapper and place the cheese in the center of a medium sized casserole dish.

What to Serve with Boursin Pasta

If you’re not sure what to serve with this pasta dish, I have a whole list of the best side dishes to serve with pasta. But here are a few of my favorites:

How to Store Leftovers

If you have leftovers, store them in the fridge for up to 2 days. This pasta is best served right away, as it does have a tendency to dry out after it sits. If you’re reheating leftovers, drizzle a little olive oil on top and reheat in the microwave. Stir to incorporate.
