I have been seeing Boursin cheese all over social media lately and I have been told several times that I need to try it. Boursin is a creamy, spreadable cheese seasoned with garlic and fine herbs. I know a lot of people just eat it with crackers or put it on their baked potatoes but as soon as I saw that it was garlicky and herby, I knew I had to make pasta with it. And yes, it is definitely worth the hype. Nothing better than cheesy, garlicky, and creamy pasta. Plus it has bacon! What more could you ask for!?
