TikTok Pasta/ Baked Feta Pasta | Breakfast Care

TikTok Pasta/ Baked Feta Pasta:  If you haven’t tried this viral TikTok recipe, then you must. It is so easy to make, so creamy, and finger licking good.


Ingredients

10 ounce pasta 
• 20 ounces cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
• 8-ounce block feta cheese, drained
• 1 garlic clove, finely grated
• 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
• Flaky sea salt, for serving
• Kosher salt, as per taste
Freshly ground black pepper, as per taste


Instructions

• Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, toss the cherry tomatoes and olive oil with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and several grinds of black pepper.

• Pour into a 2 1/2 to 3-quart baking dish. Place the feta in the center of the tomatoes, then season with a pinch of black pepper.

• Bake until the tomatoes have burst and the feta has softened, about 30 minutes.

• Raise the heat to 450 degrees F, then continue to cook until the tomatoes and feta are golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes more.

Bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, about 13 minutes. Reserve 1/2 cup of cooking water, then drain well.

• As soon as the tomatoes and feta come out of the oven, stir in the garlic and red pepper flakes.

• Use the back of a spoon to smash the tomatoes and feta into a smooth and creamy sauce.

• Add the pasta and half of the basil until evenly coated.

• Add some pasta water, a couple tablespoons at a time, if the sauce becomes too thick.

• Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.

Garnish with the remaining basil, feta and a pinch of sea salt and serve.

Enjoy!
