Tips for Making Feta Pasta
Use any pasta. The great thing about this recipe is that you don’t need to use a specific type of pasta. Any pasta will work so use your favorite.
Use Fresh Ingredients. Since there are so few ingredients in this recipe it is important to use fresh ingredients to maximize the flavor.
Feta Cheese. You want the feta to melt and mix with the tomatoes to make the creamy sauce. You want to use blocked feta to get the best melt, however if you can only find crumbled feta then you will want to pile it all together in the baking dish in the same way you would put the block feta cheese.
Grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes. Either one will work, but it is important to use a small tomato because you want them to roast in the oven and produce thee amazing flavor. Large tomatoes will not bake the same or give you the same flavor.
Add some protein. If you are wanting to make a full meal out of this baked feta pasta you can add some cooked shrimp or cooked chicken to the pasta dish when you are mixing the feta and tomato sauce with the pasta.
What to Serve with Baked Feta Pasta
Like a traditional baked pasta dish this recipe is great served with fresh bread and a salad. I like grabbing a loaf of crusty bread when I am at the store but you can make it homemade if you want to.

- 8 ounce brick of feta cheese
- 2 pints cherry or grape tomatoes
- 4 cloves garlic cloves
- 1 tablespoon olive oil

How Make Baked Tomato and Feta Pasta
Preheat oven to 400°F.
In a 9 x 13 Pan. Place the brick of feta cheese in the middle, surround the cheese with the tomatoes and garlic. Drizzle the oil, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper over everything and stir to coat.
Place the tomato pan in the oven and cook for 30 minutes until the tomato starts to blister open.
While the feta and tomatoes are cooking bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the pasta per the directions on the box. Don’t forget to season the water with salt.
