What is Baked Feta Pasta?
The premise is simple, simply place a block of feta on a baking dish, surround by cherry tomatoes and drizzle with seasonings and olive oil. Bake until the cheese is soft and the tomatoes are roasted to perfection. You’ll then mash up the cheese and tomatoes a bit and then add your favourite pasta of choice. We added some tomato sauce to make it more sauce-like, olive oil and parmesan and voila! You’ve got this amazing, tantalizing dish! What we love about this Feta tomato pasta dish is that it’s really one pan and makes for a super easy and delicious dinner when you’re strapped for time!
What can you add to make Baked Feta Pasta taste even more amazing?
We did a few things that we think really amped up the recipe here. First, use really good ingredients as there are so few in this dish they each need to be the best you can source. We used organic sugar plum tomatoes, fresh garlic and basil, plus high-quality olive oil. You can add your own Italian seasoning. We also added fresh basil before and after the dish baked. Of course, only fresh chopped garlic was used. After baking, we enhanced the sauce by adding extra tomato sauce, olive oil, fresh basil and grated parmesan cheese.
