Boursin Cheese Baked TikTok Pasta
Freshly cooked pasta tossed with baked Boursin cheese, tomatoes, garlic, spices, and parmesan cheese. This easy-baked pasta recipe will knock your socks off!
So I officially joined TikTok. After my kids saying over and over again, "I learned this on TikTok," I finally succumbed. I opened up my official Modern Honey TikTok account and I am now in the TikTok business of sharing food videos.
I don't know about you but I am a visual learner so I am trying to share more food videos for all of you out there! I hope you love them and they are helping you in the kitchen!
I saw this pasta dish that went crazy viral on TikTok and knew that I had to try it out. I thought it was good but knew it could be better. The original recipe calls for a block of feta cheese. I saw another guy share a tweak to the recipe by using Boursin cheese instead of feta cheese and I was hooked. I couldn't get to the grocery store fast enough!
Let me just say -- this TikTok Pasta is one of my favorite pasta dishes of all times. Yes, that is a very bold statement but it is THAT good. If you haven't tried Boursin cheese, it is It is a soft creamy cheese available in a variety of flavors, with a texture somewhat similar to cream cheese. I tend to reach for the Garlic and Herbs Boursin cheese but I have loved every flavor I have tried.
This Boursin Cheese Baked TikTok Pasta is made by placing two rounds of Boursin cheese and fresh grape or cherry tomatoes into a baking dish. Then you drizzle it all with extra virgin olive oil and add fresh garlic, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Bake it for about 35 minutes until the tomatoes are softened and the cheese is melted.
Then you toss it with your favorite cooked pasta, fresh basil, a touch of spinach if you like that kind of thing, and freshly grated parmesan cheese. It has all kinds of flavor from the Boursin cheese to the roasted tomatoes to the garlic to the parmean cheese to the fresh basil. You've got it all with this baked pasta!
Now I know why this TikTok recipe went so viral. I am adding this to my dinner rotation because it is not only easy but tastes phenomenal!
How to make the Baked TikTok Pasta:
- Start by placing the Boursin cheese and grape or cherry tomatoes into a 9 x 13 baking dish. Generously drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Finely chop fresh garlic and place all over the tomatoes. Bake uncovered for about 35 minutes. The tomatoes will be softened and roasted and the cheese will be melted.
- While the tomatoes are roasting, cook the pasta by heating a pot of water over high heat until boiling. Pick out your favorite type of pasta. You can use everything from small pasta to large pasta. Make sure to salt the water to give the pasta flavor. Set aside ½ cup of pasta water to add to the sauce.
- Remove the tomatoes and cheese from the oven and add the pasta to the baking dish. Fold in fresh basil, spinach, and top with freshly grated parmesan cheese. Check for seasonings and make sure you have enough salt and pepper!
- This makes delicious leftovers! Just cover it well in the refrigerator and you can eat leftovers for days -- if it lasts that long!

I hope you love this famous TikTok pasta recipe!
Wow wow wow … absolutely Fantastic! We omitted the spinach and tossed in cut up chicken breasts but everything else made as directed. Restaurant quality dish! Thank you so much.
Could you use the dairy free boursin cheese?
This was absolutely amazing. My entire family loved it. Definitely making this again!!
Five star recipe! So easy and SO delicious!
Such a yummy pasta recipe!! I love making this for my family.
Can raw spinach be included with tomatoes and Boursin to bake ?
Love this pasta, noodles are so tender, sauce is super flavorful! Really easy to make as well. Thanks for another stellar recipe. 🙂
This turned out delicious and so easy to make! This is a keeper
Made it, delicious.
Delicious! Incredibly easy to make. I really love the upgrade of spinach to the original TikTok recipe. Everyone in my family is obsessed!
This is so much better than using feta cheese for this recipe. The Boursin adds so much more flavor; I used the basil and herb flavor. Next time I will add some grilled shrimp and spinach. I didn't have spinach when I made this recipe but it was still so yummy.
I've tried the feta version, but this looks great too! I wonder if there is an adaptation for a smaller amount? I supposed just one block of boursin, fewer tomatoes, and a smaller baking dish?
That’s what I am doing tonight. I just halved everything.
When you print the recipe, choose whichever servings you want to make and it adjusts accordingly. I printed three servings. Perfect.
Yum...I love this recipe. I found it on tik tok too. I sometimes add shrimp or chicken...sometimes some heavy cream, it just depends on my mood. Lol
In response to your request for input on the creator of the Tik Toc pasta recipe that went viral, the original called for feta cheese. "A version of feta pasta was originally shared by Tiiu Piret on her blog in 2018, then it went viral a year later when Jenni Hayrinen shared her simplified version of “uunifetapasta” (Finnish for ‘oven-baked feta pasta’) on Tiktok (and her blog)."
Thanks Becky for sharing! I always want to give credit where credit is due. 🙂
how do you measure tomatoes by pints?

Great Idea, I'm making this for dinner tonight. I was wondering what to make for dinner. I had already called my family and asked them if they wanted some kind of pasta tonight. We have ESP Melissa. I haven't hear of the cheese you are using in your recipe but I bet I'll find it at my local Von's store. They have everything. Thank you for the great recipe, I can't wait to make this for dinner tonight.
