Description

A one-dish creamy, cheesy pasta recipe with feta, parmesan, and cherry tomatoes that takes only 30 minutes to make!


Ingredients

Scale
  • Farfalle pasta, half of a bag
  • 1 standard block of feta cheese
  • 1 container of heirloom cherry tomatoes
  • Approximately 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan (or more! go crazy)
  • Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
  • 23 cloves freshly minced garlic
  • Roughly 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • Chili flakes to taste
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400°F.
  2. Place the block of feta in a baking dish and add the cherry tomatoes around the feta.
  3. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and add your seasonings: garlic, salt & pepper, chili flakes, oregano.
  4. Bake seasoned feta and tomatoes for 30 minutes.
  5. With about 8 minutes left to bake, start cooking your pasta.  I love farfalle for this dish, but any pasta will do.  Cook and drain according to the instructions on the package.
  6. After 30 minutes of baking, switch your oven to “broil” and select the “high” setting.  Keep a close eye on the feta and tomatoes to avoid burning.  Once there is a satisfying char on the tomatoes and the feta is browning, about 1-2 minutes, remove the dish from the oven.
  7. Combine your pasta with the feta and tomatoes.  Add in your grated Parmesan and mix until the pasta is evenly coated.
  8. Garnish with a little extra black pepper and chili flakes and serve.

Notes

  • A small, textured pasta shape is best but you can use any variety you want
  • Broiling can be really oven-specific, so don’t turn your back while broiling! Food can burn in a flash.
