Had to jump on the viral trend of the baked feta pasta that has been all over Tiktok. Thanks to Tunie for showing me this delicious recipe. I decided to follow the recipe, but add my own twist to it of course.
Baked Feta Pasta
- 8 ounce block of feta cheese
- 1 1/2 pounds cherry tomatoes
- 1/4 olive oil (lemon thyme infused olive oil)
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- pinch sea salt
- fresh cracked black pepper
- 8 ounces uncooked pasta
- 4 large minced garlic cloves
- 1 cup chopped fresh basil
Make sure to preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Grab your 1 1/2 pounds of cherry tomatoes and arrange in an oven safe dish. Put the 8 ounce block of feta in the center and generously cover it with olive oil as well as salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
Once the oven is preheated, bake for 30 minutes. While the feta is baking, boil the pasta. When the feta has about 5 minutes left add your minced garlic and half of your chopped basil. Finally, once done baking your pasta should be cooked. Strain the pasta and add it to the baking dish stir it in with the feta and cherry tomatoes. Plate and add the rest of your chopped basil and cherry tomatoes as a garnish. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did! Quick. Easy. Foolproof. Delicious.
