Boursin Pasta with Spinach


It's hard to believe that something so creamy and so delicious could have only three - count 'em, three! - primary ingredients! But it's true. Dinner doesn't get much easier than this.

Boil water, cook pasta, stir in cheese, plop it all on top of spinach ... that's it! And with the whole grain pasta and all those gorgeous green vegetables, it's even nutritious.

In the midst of all the holiday chaos, isn't it good to know you can still eat well without a huge investment of time? A good pantry (especially when you find the Boursin on sale and just wait for the right moment to use it!) can salvage any meal ....

Boursin Pasta with Spinach

2 cups whole wheat penne
half of a 5.2-ounce package Boursin Garlic & Fine Herbs cheese
pinch each of kosher salt and black pepper
3 cups baby spinach leaves
Parmesan cheese, for serving

Prepare pasta according to package directions; drain and return pasta to pot. Stir in cheese, salt and pepper. Divide spinach among two dinner plates and top with pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan.

Serves 2.

This sounds great. I love Boursin cheese. It's wonderful on a sandwich too.

This looks delicious! I've never heard of Boursin cheese. Where have I been??? I just bought some Cranberry Stilton, and usually have pepper jack, Cheddar, and Parmasean in the house. I'll have to check into this Boursin.

If it was legal to marry boursin cheese, Alexis would have to worry. That stuff is heavenly.
