boursin pasta recipeMy friend Corey and I are obsessed with a cookbook called The Bride and Groom First and Forever Cookbook.  It is sort of a cult classic, but very cheesy.  Being married for as long as I have, we sort of laugh at the his-and-her cooking scenarios.  Planning meals together, lovingly going grocery shopping together, chopping vegetables side by side, you get the idea.  I guess after 8 years, and 3 children, and a dog, we are playing more “dinner survival” than “lovey-dovey pot roast making”.  Call me jaded.  Even though it is dorky, I give it to all of my friends that have recently gotten married.  I hope that they enjoy the newlywed time in the kitchen while it lasts.  It does have some really good recipes in it, this Boursin Pasta being one of them.  This is a loose interpretation, but the idea is that same. I like to keep Boursin in the fridge at all times.  It really helps make dinner fast, and seemingly elegant at the same time.

You can use any green vegetable that you have, or add chicken or shrimp.  This dish is so versatile, that is one of my go-to quick weeknight dinners.  The people at Dreamfields Pasta asked me to share a recipe that I consider to be a Stovetop Savior, and I did not even have to think about what I would share, I knew that it would be this recipe.  For a long time, I avoided eating pasta.  Wes was not a huge pasta fan, and pasta gets a bad rap sometimes.  Dreamfields pasta is low in carbs, and has 5g of fiber.  The best part is that it tastes delicious.  You would never know that it is good for you.

    why are some of your recipes printable and some are not?

    • bakedbree says:

      they are actually all printable, (there is a green print-friendly button on the bottom of each post) but it is because I have to manually add that box to each post, and I have hundreds, so it is taking me awhile.

  10. Corey says:

    I love that you are rockin the bride and groom in Kansas! Too bad I’m not closer or I’d be right over! Looks Delish!

  11. Brandon says:

    This reminds me of a dish I saw over the summer with peas, prosciutto, white wine, and pearl onions… so good! This looks great!

  12. alison says:

    Making this for supper tonight with my 10 year old. It’s a great meal for teaching kids…cooking pasta, veggies, measuring, sautéing garlic. He is so excited to be cooking for his family!

  13. This looks so incredibly delicious! I love Boursin, but I’ve never used it in cooking before, just to spread on crackers. I’ll definitely have to give this a try!

  14. Katie says:

    I’m planning on making this recipe this weekend! One question though, how much does the original recipe serve?

  15. Christina says:

    what are the carbs for the Borsin pasta please????

    • bakedbree says:

      In all honesty, I do not know. I am never comfortable giving nutritional information because I am not a nutritionist, just a home cook. I wish that I could be more helpful.

  16. Kelly @free spirit food says:

    I have never used Boursin cheese before, but I’m going to try I the next time I get to the store.

  17. Alice says:

    I was really excited for this recipe since it is listed under the “Vegetarian” section. However, chicken stock makes is a non-vegetarian meal. I will use veggie broth instead, but I would suggest moving it to the “Chicken” section.

  18. lindsay says:

    What section in the grocery store is borsin cheese found? I could only find some sort of refrigerated 50% less fat garlic and herb cheese spread… I hope this turns out ok.

  19. Karen says:

    This looks easy to make and delicious! It will be on our menu shortly.

  20. Wow, this looks so delicious, fast, easy, and adaptable! I think my picky husband might like it, too – thanks for the idea!! Love your blog, too!

  21. snackydoo says:

    If my mouse goes over a pic, it fades? Uh…

  22. Izzie says:

    wow! I just made this with an old box wine and some frozen spinach and it’s definitely one of the best things I’ve ever cooked. Thanks for the recipe! :)

  23. Tiffany says:

    For this recipe, do you use the sundried tomatoes packed in oil, or the dried pouch? I have made this before but can’t remember which one I used. Thanks!

  24. Tina says:

    I am so excited!! I found a 2-pack of recently expired Boursin hiding in the back of the fridge…guess what I am making for dinner! lol

    PS just stumbled upon your site (while looking for a honey poppyseed dressing recipe) and I LOVE it! Thanks so much!!
