Boursin Noodles with Smoked Sausage

A quick game night pasta recipe brought to us by Liz.  This is one of the easiest recipes to make, and takes less than 30 minutes!  If you want to make this a bit healthier Liz mentions you can leave out the smoked sausage and substitute chicken.  Another option is you can make some delicious Boursin meatballs (You would need two packages of Boursin for this option).  You can even switch up the type of Boursin used — there’s a few different flavors that would be exceptional, experiment with the recipe, have fun, and dig in!


  • 8 oz. Egg noodles
  • 2 2/3 cups Low sodium chicken broth
  • 3 Tbsp Unsalted butter, divided into 2 Tbsp and 1 Tbsp
  • 1 5 oz package Boursin Garlic & Fine Herb cheese
  • 1 package Smoked Sausage, thawed, cut into 1/2 inch thick rounds
  • Salt and Black Pepper


  • 3 Quart Pot
  • Cutting Knife
  • Skillet
  • Large Cooking Spoon


  1. Add chicken broth to a 3-quart pot and bring to a boil, then add egg noodles.  As the noodles are in the pot and the broth is boiling, make sure to stir the noodles to ensure they are fully coated with the chicken broth.
  2. Place the skillet on the stove and set to med-high heat.
  3. Cut up sausage (or chicken if you substituted) and add to the hot skillet, cook until browned.
  4. Add 2 Tbsp butter to the sausage and cover.  Cook for about 8 minutes.
  5. When noodles are done, turn off heat but do not remove pot from burner, do not drain out the remaining broth, there will be a little chicken broth left.
  6. Add 1 Tbsp butter to noodles and stir until butter is melted and mixed throughout the noodles.
  7. Add the Boursin cheese to the noodles, break it up with cooking spoon and stir well to combine until smooth.
  8. Add cooked smoked sausage to noodles and stir to combine.
  9. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Cook over medium heat for an additional 2-3 minutes to ensure the sausage is warm, and all ingredients are mixed thoroughly.

3 Comments on Boursin Noodles with Smoked Sausage

  1. I ended up making this, or at least a version of it last night. Boursin cheese seems to be something that is nigh impossible to find in my neck of the woods (seeing as I had never heard of it before), so in a moment of randomness I substituted some shredded asiago.

    Worked just fine and the end result can only really be described as “high end mac and cheese”. Will definitely try and track down some Boursin and make the recipe proper, but if you can’t find it I will say that shredded cheese of your choice works okay.

  2. If you can’t find Boursin cheese, substitute half a block of regular cream cheese and 1 tsp (or more to your taste) of garlic powder and 1 tsp (again, to your taste) of onion powder. Be sure to mix well to combine! 🙂
