Baked Feta Pasta

Baked feta pasta has gone completely viral, and for good reason! It is just SO delicious, and easy. I’ve been loving seeing everyone’s different variations, and their own spin. I’ve tried it the original way, with my own take, and then I recently also tried it with goat cheese and broccolini, for some greens. It was SO good. More on that soon.

It’s Simple, What You’ll Need

Your pasta of choice, I chose to use orecchiette. Next, cherry tomatoes, feta, garlic, oil, basil and salt and pepper. I added oregano and lemon zest to my mixture as well!

How To Make Your Pasta

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 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. Drain and reserve 1/4th cup pasta water.

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