Have you tried this amazing baked feta pasta recipe?
I’m not a big follower of online trends unless it has something to do with food that is! I love trying new recipes and when I saw this super popular TikTok trend featuring this baked feta pasta, I just had to give it a try! The recipe is super simple to make (my favorite kind) and with prep work and cooking time, took about 45 minutes to make!
Keep reading for the step-by-step guide on how to make the infamous Baked Feta Pasta.
What’s super fun about this recipe is that you can use any kind of pasta that you want! I ended up using cavatappi (or swirly pasta, as I like to call them). This pasta is thicker and perfect for tomato-based dishes such as this one.
For this Baked Feta Pasta recipe you will need:
1-pint of cherry tomatoes (about 350 ml)
1/2 cup olive oil
1 block feta about 8 oz
1 head of garlic – about 6-8 whole garlic cloves (remove the skin)
1 fresh basil leaves (some chopped and some whole for garnishing)
salt and pepper
1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
STEP 1: Preheat oven to 400. Add tomato, garlic cloves, and olive oil to a baking dish and toss with salt and pepper until everything is coated.
STEP 2: Add the feta in the middle and Bake for 30 minutes.
STEP 3: Prepare the pasta according to directions then strain.
STEP 4: After 30 minutes, rise the oven temp to 450 and bake for another 5-10 minutes or until the feta and tomatoes have browned.
STEP 5: Use a fork to mash the feta, garlic, and cherry tomatoes.
STEP 6: Toss in some chopped basil then add the pasta and stir. Add some more fresh basil on top and serve!
Super easy recipe and oh so filling! I highly recommend this and will be making it again for sure!
