Feta Pasta

Discover a culinary phenomenon that has taken the internet by storm—Feta Pasta. Picture the allure of mac and cheese, now infused with the tantalizing charm of feta cheese and bursts of juicy cherry tomatoes. It’s not just a dish; it’s a culinary uprising against blandness, a swift and sensational symphony of flavors that will grace your table in less than an hour.

In a baking dish, an ensemble of halved cherry tomatoes, a block of creamy feta cheese, minced garlic, and a symphony of spices awaits its transformation. Drizzle it all with extra-virgin olive oil, creating a tantalizing medley that promises a revelation in every bite.

As the ensemble bakes in the preheated oven at 400°F (200°C), the tomatoes soften, and the feta transforms into a golden, gooey masterpiece. Meanwhile, a pot of pasta bubbles away on the stove, preparing to join this culinary adventure.

When the timer chimes, the feta-tomato concoction emerges, and the real magic begins. With a wooden spoon, mash the feta and tomatoes into a flavorful amalgamation. Add the al dente pasta, tossing it with the tomato-feta medley until each strand is luxuriously coated.

Garnish the creation with sprigs of fresh basil, an aromatic finale to this culinary journey. The result? A plateful of comfort, a swift yet indulgent experience, and a chorus of flavors that dance on your taste buds.

  • 9×13 inch baking dish
  • Large pot for boiling pasta

  • Aluminum foil


  • 16 oz (450g) cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 block (8 oz or 225g ) feta cheese
  • ½ cup (120ml) olive oil extra-virgin
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes adjust to taste
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 12 oz (340g) pasta (penne or any preferred type)


  • Fresh basil


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • In a large baking dish, combine the halved cherry tomatoes, block of feta cheese in the center, minced garlic, dried oregano, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper. Drizzle the olive oil over the ingredients.
  • Gently toss the tomatoes to coat them in the olive oil and spices, ensuring the feta cheese is placed in the center.
  • Bake the mixture in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the tomatoes are softened and the feta cheese has melted and developed a golden crust.
  • While the tomato and feta mixture is baking, cook the pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain the pasta and set aside.
  • Once the tomato and feta mixture is done baking, remove it from the oven. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to mash the feta and tomatoes together until well combined.
  • Add the cooked pasta to the baking dish, tossing it with the tomato-feta mixture until the pasta is evenly coated.
  • Garnish with fresh basil leaves and serve immediately.
