Baked Feta Pasta


  • 8 ounces tortellini or any dried pasta of choice
  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 8- ounce block feta cheese
  • Fresh or Dried Basil
  • Parmesan cheese for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Place the cherry tomatoes in an oven-safe baking dish. Pour the olive oil on top, and add the garlic, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Toss until well combined.
  2. Place the feta block in the middle of the baking dish surrounded by the cherry tomatoes.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes, until the cherry tomatoes burst, and the feta cheese melts.
  4. While the tomatoes and feta are baking, cook the pasta in a pot of salted water according to package instructions until al dente. Drain, reserving ½ cup of the pasta water.
  5. Remove from the oven and use a spoon or whisk to mash up the tomatoes and stir everything together. It will create a creamy sauce with chunks of tomato.
  6. Transfer the cooked pasta to the baking dish and toss to combine. Garnish with fresh basil and parmesan cheese and serve warm.
