Baked Feta Pasta

What ingredients do you need for this baked feta pasta recipe?

Your pasta of choice, I chose to use orecchiette, but other kinds like rigatoni, penne or fusilli will work too. Even gluten-free pasta.

Next, cherry tomatoes/grape tomatoes, block of feta cheese, garlic, oil, basil and salt and black pepper. I added oregano and lemon zest to my mixture as well!

Tips and Tricks

Opt to add any seasonings like red pepper flakes, lemon juice and more! You can add any protein like chicken, shrimp or steak as well.

You can really sub with anything you like as well for cheese like cream cheese, ricotta cheese, goat cheese, brie or anything that will be creamy and melt nicely.

Instructions to make this pasta recipe

Preheat oven to 400°F. Put your cherry tomatoes in an oven safe-baking dish. Pour your olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss in your garlic, oregano and lemon zest.

Next, place your feta in the center, season again with a drizzle of oil and pepper. At this point, it doesn’t need anymore salt, you’ll get enough salt from the feta.

Bake for 35-40 minutes until your tomatoes burst and the feta is soft and melty. While your sauce is cooking, make your pasta according to the package instructions and boil water and cook to al dente in salted water in a large pot. Drain and reserve 1/4th cup pasta water.

When your sauce is ready, take out of the oven, and add chopped basil, toss and stir with your pasta and pasta water. Serve with more fresh basil to garnish!

    This recipe tasted awesome and was so easy to make! Had all the ingredients fresh from the garden. My recommendation is to add extra cheese!

    I love this recipe, I’ve made it 2 or 3 times.

    Wondering for the future, do you think I have to use the block of feta, or can I buy the broken up kind? I have to go out of my way to buy the block at a different store to make this lol. I’m afraid to try the crumbles and have the recipe fail. Sorry if this is a dumb question!

    1. Thank you!! It should be fine if you use the crumbled kind! I would maybe keep an eye on it though as it may need less time since we’re not warming through a whole block!
