Farmhouse Mac & Cheese

This isn’t your average macaroni and cheese recipe! It’s made extra special with creamy Boursin Cheese Garlic & Fine Herbs and savory toppings … and it’s ready in 30 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bite-sized
    pasta of your choice
  • 1 quart heavy cream
  • 1 box Boursin
    Cheese Garlic & Herbs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
    powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher
    salt
  • 1 tablespoon canola
    oil
  • 1 (14-ounce) package
    Lunds & Byerlys Smoked Bacon & Apple Chicken Sausages, cut into thin
    bias slices
  • ½ cup thinly sliced
    sweet onion
  • 2 firm apples,
    cored and diced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh
    thyme leaves
  • 2 teaspoons chopped
    parsley
  • Freshly ground
    pepper

Directions

  1. Cook the pasta according to package
    instructions. Drain the cooked pasta and keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, place heavy cream, all but
    2 tablespoons of the Boursin Cheese, garlic powder and salt into a large pot.
    Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes, stirring to evenly
    combine into a smooth sauce. Remove the pot from the heat. Add the drained
    pasta and stir gently to evenly combine.
  3. While the cheese sauce is coming
    together, place a large nonstick sauté pan on high heat. Add the canola oil.
    When the oil begins to shimmer, add the chicken sausage and spread into an even
    layer. Place the onions on top of the sausage, then place the apples on top of
    the onions. Sprinkle with the fresh thyme. Let cook without stirring for 1
    minute, then stir to combine and cook an additional 3-5 minutes until the
    apples begin to soften and the onions become translucent and begin to brown
    around the edges.
  4. Divide the hot, cheesy pasta into 4
    serving bowls. Spoon a quarter of the hot sausage/onion/apple mixture in the
    center of each pasta serving; then sprinkle each with fresh parsley and the
    remaining Boursin Cheese. Finish with a few cracks of freshly ground pepper.
