Fire up your Traeger, we’re about to make one of the simplest, most flavorful pastas ever! Our Traeger Boursin Pasta uses fresh bell pepper, onion, and tomatoes as the base along with Garlic & Herb Boursin cheese. Delicious! Works great as a side dish, or turn it into a main with some grilled chicken or shrimp.
Traeger Boursin Pasta
Sometimes when I fire up the grill, I want something more on it than a slab of meat. Not that a slab of meat isn’t amazing, it is. But occasionally, we want something a little different. The great thing about pellet grills is that they’re basically big outdoor ovens so you aren’t really stuck making the same things over and over again.
This Boursin pasta recipe was born as a spin-off of the viral TikTok Feta Pasta trend from years past that puts a slab of feta in the middle of a baking dish surrounded by vegetables and then gets tossed with pasta. That recipe was originally done in the oven, but you know I adapted and messed with it and made a Traeger TikTok Feta Pasta. We even included some sausage in one version and it was fantastic!
I love Boursin cheese spread on a cracker and it makes an appearance at most of our parties and holiday gatherings, but I’d never used it in cooking before. Can’t figure out why! It works wonders, is easy to use, and adds such a big kick of flavor into your dishes.

How to make Boursin Pasta on the Traeger
This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.
Fire up that pellet grill and get it preheating to 375°F.
Put the olive oil into the bottom of a grill-safe baking dish. Slice the tomatoes, dice the peppers, chop that garlic, and do whatever else needs to be doing while the grill heats up.
Slap the Boursin in the middle of the dish. Surround it by the vegetables.
Roast & Boil
Roast it in the grill for 20 minutes. Add the wine. Keep on roasting for another 15 minutes or so.
Boil your noodles while all this is happening. Use well-salted water. Don’t overcook them! No one likes a squishy noodle.
Mix & Enjoy
Mix together the Boursin and the vegetables with the pasta. Stir in the parmesan, salt and pepper to taste, and sprinkle on those fresh herbs. Enjoy!

Boursin Pasta FAQ
What’s the best way to store the leftovers?
Toss these in any airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. Spoiler alert! The leftovers make great pasta salad, eaten cold, the following day!
Can you substitute another type of cheese?
You can, but the flavor will be significantly different. Experiment and try it out though! We’ve used feta successfully, as well as cream cheese, goat cheese, and leftover cheese balls too. Get creative. It is just cooking!
What are some good options for protein to include with this pasta?
A super easy option would be a quick seared kielbasa or polish sausage. Our Traeger Grilled Shrimp Skewers would also be perfect (and easy) alongside this dish! Want something fancy? Cook up one of these great Traeger Tomahawk Ribeyes. We have a recipe for making a Tomahawk Ribeye on the Blackstone too.
