{viral} Baked Feta Pasta with Boursin cheese & shrimp

My daughters request over the weekend. We made the viral TikTok pasta two weeks ago and my girls have been asking to make it again. So here we are. Second time around tasted just as amazing as the first time. I used pappardelle noodles this time & added pasta water to mix it all together. I was able to stretch more noodles to sauce ratio by adding the pasta water. Delishhh. Let me know if we inspired you to try it. It’s such an easy & tasty meal that will be in rotation in our home 🙂 Updated recipe below!

How we made it:

In a baking dish, I added a package of red cherry 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 boiled pappardelle pasta noodles al dente in a salted pot of water

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

Tossed in raw shrimps, stirring & flipping until they turned pink

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

Then stirred in the pappardelle pasta, 1/2 cup pasta water, 2 tbsp of cut up basil leaves and buttery shrimp

Enjoy 🙂


{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
