This delicious dish could be your dinner tonight!
All you need is the secret ingredient…a package of Boursin Garlic and Fine Herbs cheese.
Sure, you could use regular cream cheese here, perhaps add your own herbs mix, but I highly suggest you try it with the Boursin. It adds some really great flavour.
A word of warning…Boursin cheese is extremely yummy! You may find yourself snacking on it while waiting for the pasta to cook…make sure to set half of it aside, well hidden, or you may find yourself all out of the “secret ingredient” (trust me on this, it’s that good!).
Make this for a date night, double the recipe and make if for your family, or make it for dinner and take the rest for lunch the next day.
