Remember when that baked feta pasta was all over TikTok? I remember watching those videos and thinking…yeah, I can definitely make that so much better. Well, with a little experimenting and a lot of pasta taste testing (which was great), I’m ready to present this Boursin cheese pasta.

Also known as Boursin tomato pasta, this easy baked sauce recipe is seriously going to make you reconsider ever buying a jar of pasta sauce again. It’s creamy and cheesy from the Boursin cheese (I swear Boursin is so underrated and not used enough) and loaded with robust flavors from the tomatoes, olives, and red onions.

And, yes, Boursin is so much better than feta in this baked pasta recipe. Boursin is creamier, less tangy, and way less salty. With the feta, I felt all I could taste was that tangy bite and how salty it was. With my version, I noticed that when it’s stirred with the other ingredients at the end of the bake time, Boursin is so much smoother and creamier than the feta was!

Recipe Tips and Variations

  • Make this vegetarian by omitting the chicken entirely or replace it with a plant-based alternative. They also make dairy-free Boursin now!
  • Use different Boursin cheese flavors! Not only does Boursin cheese come in a variety of flavors now, I have made this Boursin tomato pasta with half garlic and fine herb and half shallot and chive and it’s just as delicious!
  • Different pasta shapes like fusilli would grab the sauce in its little spiral pockets really well and even orecchiette! I used bowtie pasta because I love the shape!

Storage and Reheating Instructions

Allow Boursin tomato pasta to cool completely before storing leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. To reheat, reheat until warmed through in the microwave.

  • Preheat oven to 350 °F (177 °C).
  • In a 9×13-inch oven-safe casserole dish, add 1 tablespoon of oil then toss tomatoes, red onion, and olives with Italian seasoning, salt, and ground black pepper.
  • Make two wells then add cheese pucks in each well.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the pasta until desired doneness. Drain and set aside.
  • Once the tomato mixture is done, remove from oven and carefully burst the tomatoes with the back of a fork. Stir the mixture all together, mixing the cheese throughout.
  • Add the chicken and spinach on top and stir until the spinach is cooked through (the residual heat from the tomato mixture will cook it and warm through the chicken).
  • Add the pasta then stir again to incorporate well.
  • Garnish with fresh chopped basil and season with additional salt and pepper, to taste.

  1. Made it last week and so good I had to comment on it! I love anything with Boursin in it so knew it would be a win for my lot!

    1. Serena!! This makes me so happy to see your name and also the feedback. Thank you, thank you!! So glad you all enjoyed it!

  2. I made this for dinner last night with a few adjustments. For some reason, I couldn’t find a red onion. (I went to two different stores, and they were out. It must be a supply chain issue.) So, I used a sweet onion instead. Since I’m a vegetarian, I left out the chicken and used eight ounces of pasta. I sliced the olives in half to increase the chance of getting a bit of olive in every bite.

    It was a hit. All the bowls returned empty, and my kids said I should make it again. Everyone liked it, and it was easy to make. That earns it a spot in regular rotation.

    1. So glad you and your kids enjoyed this and it has earned a spot in your regular rotation! Hopefully next time you’ll be able to find a red onion, but great that a sweet onion worked for you! Thanks for the feedback, Terrance!

  3. Are you buying your Boursin at Costco?! It is such a good deal there. Thanks for this recipe. We will definitely be making ASAP!
