- Olive oil - a little olive oil to grease the oven dish

How to make Boursin Pasta (Step-by-Step)
This recipe is delicious and super simple to make as you will see from the steps below!
Step 1 - Preparation
Preheat your oven to 390°F (200°C). Lightly grease your oven dish with olive oil.
Step 2 - Assemble ingredients
Empty the Boursin Cheese into the center of your oven dish.
Place the dry pasta around the cheese and pour the tin of cherry tomatoes over the top.
Refill the empty tin with clear water about 3/4 all the way up and pour the water into the oven dish. It should roughly cover the fusilli pasta in the dish.
Step 3 - Bake
Transfer the dish to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the tomatoes on top look wonderfully roasted and the pasta has soaked up the majority of liquid.
Carefully remove the dish from the oven and use a wooden spoon or spatula to stir the pasta and sauce until evenly distributed.
Season to taste with salt and pepper (if needed) and serve immediately. This is delicious on its own and with a side of freshly baked focaccia bread.
Frequently Asked Questions - Boursin Pasta
I've used Boursin Plantbased for this recipe, but you can use any Boursin soft cheese with this recipe. You can also try other brands of soft cheese, but I have to admit that I've not tested the recipe with another brand. I would guess, that as long as it melts under heat, it should work out!
You can, but I find that the tinned cherry tomatoes give a wonderful roasted flavor and more interesting texture to the dish. If you can't find tinned ones or are simply out of stock, then definitely try this dish with tinned chopped tomatoes instead, it'll be delicious too!
