8 ounces uncooked penne pasta or any pasta. I also use orzo, my family love this.

1 (5.2 ounce/150g) package Boursin Fine Herbs & Garlic cheese

2 cups (packed) fresh baby spinach


Boil a salted pot of water and cook the pasta al dente according to package directions. Important: reserve about a cup of the pasta water before you drain it (I just use a Pyrex measuring cup).
Drain the pasta, then add it right back into the pot it was cooked in (take it off the burner). Add the Boursin cheese and a small splash (a few tablespoons or so) of the pasta water. Toss (I use two spoons) until you’ve got the sauce the consistency that you want, gradually adding in more of the pasta water as needed. You likely won’t need to use most of it.
Add in the spinach and continue tossing the pasta until everything is nicely coated in sauce. Cover the pot and let it wilt for a minute or two, then serve. Add some salt & pepper if needed.
