Boursin Cheese and Tomato Pasta

I just saw this variation on the viral garlic tomato pasta trend from last year and I knew I had to try it! It’s just like the feta version — cherry tomatoes, garlic, cheese, and lots of fresh basil. But this time, instead of baked feta pasta, we’re making a baked Boursin pasta recipe! It’s as easy as it looks — just load your fresh tomatoes, garlic, and onions in a baking pan and bake it all until it’s soft, caramelized, and full of flavor, then stir in your favorite pasta!

What is Boursin cheese made of?

The Garlic and Fine Herbs variety of Boursin is made with milk, cream, garlic, salt, pepper, parsley and chives.

Boursin Pasta Bake Ingredients

  • cherry tomatoes – I picked up a great haul for the farmer’s market and I knew I had to try this recipe! You can use cherry or grape tomatoes, or even cut larger tomatoes into smaller pieces.
  • red onion – The roasted red onion in this recipe adds a great flavor and crunch, and a sweetness that balances out the tomatoes so well.
  • garlic – I love how delicious the garlic gets as it roasts in the olive oil! So good!
  • Boursin cheese – any variety of Boursin would be great for this recipe, including their dairy-free variety!
  • red pepper flakes – I love to add a spicy touch to my savory recipes, so we’ll use a little crushed red pepper. If you prefer not to use it, you can just leave it out!
  • extra-virgin olive oil – we’re using extra-virgin olive oil to roast our tomatoes and also to help bring the sauce together!
  • fresh basil – once it’s out of the oven, we’ll toss some basil in and it adds so much flavor.
  • salt & pepper – we’ll season our baked Boursin pasta sauce with a little salt and cracked pepper.
  • cooked pasta – I typically cook with gluten-free chickpea pasta, so that’s what I used, but you can use your favorite pasta!

What can I substitute for Boursin cheese?

If you’re looking for a dairy-free alternative to Boursin to make this recipe dairy free, you’re in luck! Boursin now has a dairy-free variety that’s available in stores and on Amazon. Otherwise, if you can’t get your hands on Boursin, you can opt for a flavored goat cheese.

Does Boursin cheese melt well?

Yes it does! It’s got a slightly crumbly consistency, so it doesn’t melt down completely, but it gets very soft and creamy, perfect spreading on this Boursin cheese pasta!

Where is Boursin cheese in the grocery store?

Boursin is often located near other specialty cheeses, near the deli or bakery section. But it may also be in the dairy case with other packaged cheeses. You can also find it online at Amazon!

What’s the Best Boursin Cheese for this Recipe?

I’ve tried this recipe with the Garlic & Fine Herbs variety and the Cracked Pepper variety of Boursin, and I prefer it with Garlic & Fine Herbs. But honestly, and kind of Boursin you can get your hands on would work well. I especially want to try it with the Shallot & Chive variety!
