Easy Baked Feta Pasta Recipe: Here's a Twist on the Delicious Viral TikTok Recipe Made With Feta Cheese & Tomatoes

Have you tried that viral feta cheese and tomatoes TikTok recipe yet? It sure made its rounds, and it's really good. But we've added a twist to the recipe with additional add-ins like shredded chicken, mushrooms and fresh spinach. Even if you're not eating pasta or you're limiting carbs, you can still serve this tangy pasta sauce recipe over grilled chicken breasts or vegetables. So savory!

You'll need:

  • 2 pints cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 block (7 ounces) feta cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 12 ounces pasta (rotinipenne or rigatoni work well, but any pasta will work), cooking according to package directions (reserve 1 cup of pasta water)
  • optional add-ins: cooked chicken, sautéed mushrooms, fresh spinach, basil leaves

Here's how to make it: 

Put the tomatoes, garlic and 1/4 cup of olive oil in a 13x9-inch baking dish. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Mix to combine.

Place the feta cheese block in the center of the tomatoes. Pour the remaining 1/4 cup olive oil over the top. Sprinkle some black pepper and red pepper flakes, if using.

Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for about 40-45 minutes, or until the tomatoes have burst.

Using a fork or potato masher, mash the feta and tomatoes together. Mix until a sauce forms, adding some of the reserved pasta water to thin, if needed. Season with salt and pepper.

Add the cooked pasta to the sauce and any additional add-ins. Toss to combine.

I can't wait to make this recipe. In the meantime, it inspired me to make this recipe from ingredients I found in my refrigerator: food: Creamy Garlic Pasta Recipe: This Easy Vegetable Pasta Recipe Was Inspired By TikTok’s Baked Feta Pasta (You Will Crave It)

This was delicious, Elisa A. Schmitz 30Seconds . I didn't think Martin would like it because he's not into really strong cheeses, but he liked it, too. It's a keeper.

So excited to hear this, Donna John ! I finally have all the ingredients. Hope to make it very soon and will report back! :-)

I made this tonight and it was AMAZING! I didn’t have fresh tomatoes, so I used canned diced tomatoes and it worked out great (poured the whole 32-ounce can in the pan, liquid and all). Then I sautéed some yellow pepper and spinach to put on top, to add nutrients but also to make it festive for St. Patrick’s Day. Simply delicious! And Dieter Schmitz loved it! Donna John
