{viral} Baked Feta Pasta recipe, using Boursin cheese

If you haven’t tried the {viral} feta pasta recipe that has been circling TikTok, here is your sign. Do it! This recipe originated from talented food blogger Jenni Häyrinen, Leimessa. Her recipe was such a big hit in Finland, they ran out of feta cheese. Seeing they were out of feta at my local Trader Joe’s, I wasn’t all that surprised. Standing there in the cheese aisle, I googled “creamy cheese that melts” lol. Boursin, brie and goat cheese came up as options. When I saw they had garlic herb Boursin cheese, I was sold. You put garlic as a flavor on anything & I’m going to pick it. I love GARLIC! So glad I went with the Boursin because it had such delicious flavor & perfect creamy texture for pasta. Win Win!

I used bow tie pasta noodles and tossed in buttery shrimp at the end. Shrimp Queen here. It was AMAZING. Best part? It was so easy to make. My daughters and I really loved it. Below is how I made it:

In a baking dish, I added mini heirloom tomatoes

Drizzled 2tbsp olive oil over them & sprinkled 1tsp Himalayan salt

Placed the garlic herb Boursin cheese in the middle of the baking dish

Drizzled 1tbsp olive oil over the cheese & sprinkled 1tbsp crushed red pepper on cheese as well

Tossed in a generous amount of minced garlic over the heirlooms (I used 2 tbsp)

Baked in the oven uncovered, at 400 for 20min

While it baked, I started the boil for my pasta & cooked the shrimp

Boiled bow tie pasta al dente (can use any pasta shape you like)

In a skillet on med high heat, I added 2tbsp organic butter & 1tbsp garlic

Tossed in raw colossal shrimps, stirring & flipping until they turned pink (light squeeze of lemon at the end)

Once the baking was done, I stirred the creamy cheese and tomatoes together, using my spoon to blend it well

Then stirred in the bow tie pasta, 2 tbsp of cut up basil leaves and buttery shrimp
