Harissa & Boursin Linguine

Featured Spices

Harissa Rub - 80g Tin
An easy, peasy comforting bowl of pasta for lovers of garlic and spice using ingredients you can easily grab from the supermarket on your way home from work. 
Serves two


3 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
200g Linguine (spaghetti also works)
10 Cherry tomatoes, halved
1 x 150g packet of Boursin Garlic & Herb soft cheese
2 tbsp chopped chives



Prepare all of your ingredients and bring a large pan of water to the boil with 2 tsp salt.
Place a medium frying pan over a medium-low heat. Add the olive oil and garlic and gentle sauté until soft and golden – do not let it brown.
Cook your pasta as per packet instructions – continue with the steps below while it cooks. 
Add the cherry tomatoes and Harissa blend to the garlic and turn the heat up to a healthy simmer. Cook until the tomatoes have broken down and their water almost evaporated – you should have a thick sauce. 
Drain your pasta, keeping a little of the water to one side. Add the Bousin to the sauce and stir well, then stir in the pasta until completely coated. Stir in the chives, and, if needed, a splash of pasta water to achieve a creamy consistency.
Serve immediately – squeeze of lemon optional!
