This dish is a breeze to pull together thanks to Boursin cheese, which was developed in France in 1957. It’s creator, Francois Boursin, based the recipe on traditional fresh cheese recipes mixed with herbs. The result is a highly flavorful and highly delicious spreadable cheese. The texture and quality of the cheese is the perfect base for cheese sauce as it melts easily without curdling. Pairing the sauce with tender egg noodles and hearty meatballs makes for a delicious and easy dinner. This recipe can easily be doubled to feed four people.
