Seeing those eye-catching feta cheese baked pasta on Tiktok? Here's how you can try it out for yourself!
Preheat oven to 200ºC. While it's heating up, scatter the cherry tomatoes and garlic in an oven-proof baking pan, drizzle over most of the olive oil and sprinkle salt, pepper, herbs and spices. Toss gently to combine.
Make a well in the middle of the tomatoes and garlic for the block of feta cheese. Drizzle remaining olive oil on the cheese, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, herbs and spices.
Bake in oven for 40 to 45 minutes. The tomatoes should have burst and the top of the feta cheese should be golden brown when you remove the pan from the oven.
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta according to package instructions.
Drain cooked pasta, reserving about 120ml of the cooking water.
Smash the baked feta and tomatoes together with the back of a large spoon, and stir to create a sauce. It might look a little chunky and dry, but that’s ok.
