This TikTok classic is simply genius: Baked Feta Pasta requires no sauce or skill, it's ready in 30 minutes, and is packed with flavor thanks to the roasted cherry tomatoes and feta cheese! It's the perfect lazy dinner that tastes like you spent a lot of time in the kitchen! Spice it up with some add-ins or make it on the stovetop if you don't have an oven!
Roast the tomatoes. Preheat the oven to 400 F. In a large baking dish, add the olive oil, tomatoes, salt, and oregano. Toss until the tomatoes are evenly coated with oil. Place the feta block in the middle of the baking dish, it should be surrounded by tomatoes and the baking dish should be crowded. Flip the feta a few times to coat it in oil. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the tomatoes have burst. Meanwhile, cook the pasta.
Cook the pasta. Cook the pasta in salted water according to the instructions on the package. I recommend cooking until al dente to avoid mushy pasta. Reserve 1/2 cup (125 ml) of pasta water, then drain the pasta and set aside.
Assemble. As soon as the baking dish comes out of the oven, add the fresh garlic and use a wooden spoon to mix and mash until a creamy sauce starts forming. Immediately add in the cooked pasta, and serve. Top with fresh basil and oregano, if desired.
Storing Instructions: store any leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. I don't recommend freezing this dish.Reheating Instructions: reheat the pasta in the microwave or on the stovetop until hot. It may be a bit drier when reheated so I recommend adding a splash of cream or milk to the dish to keep it nice and creamy.📷 DID YOU MAKE THIS RECIPE?!Tag @itsdamnspicy on Instagram and hashtag it #itsdamnspicy
