Friday Five: Boursin Cheese Alfredo Sauce


Last week I purchased the three pack of Boursin cheese from one of my favorite places in the universe: Costco!! I served one with my homemade crackers, and used the other in this Fabulous Friday Five recipe!


Trick your family into thinking you slaved over a restaurant style homemade Alfredo, and let the Boursin do all the work.

BOURSIN CHEESE ALFREDO SAUCE

One 5.2 oz. package Garlic & Herb Boursin Cheese
2-3 TB Butter for sauteing
2 TB minced shallots
2 cups Heavy Cream
1 cup grated Romano Cheese

Saute the shallots in the butter until translucent. Add in the Boursin Cheese; gently melt it. Add the cream, stirring often. Add the cheese until incorporated. Simmer until thickened. Season with salt & pepper and pour over your favorite pasta!

Variations:
Add chicken, shrimp, mushrooms......or even add a little white wine after the shallots for a fancier sauce!

Boursin is so delicious. It is great on a cracker with oysters or curried mackerel and a dollop of spicy chutney or hot sauce.

Great recipe!

I love it paired with a sweet yet savory chutney - like a red pepper jam or something:) good call, Wanderfull!
