This recipe went viral when it was placed on Tiktok a while back, so I had to give it a go. Oh my, I see what all the hype was about. It’s fun to make and so simple! For the best results use Greek feta made from a mix of goats and sheep milk. The result is much smoother and creamier; however, any feta will work.


500g (17oz) cherry or grape tomatoes

200g (7oz) block feta cheese

4 cloves garlic, halved lengthwise

250g (9oz) dried pasta

½ tsp chilli flakes or more if you like it spicy (optional)

½ cup extra virgin olive oil

fresh basil for serving

salt and pepper to taste


• Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).

• Place tomatoes, garlic and chilli flakes (if using) in a 20x30 cm (8x12 inch), or similar size, ovenproof dish.

• Season with salt and pepper.

• Drizzle over half the oil.

• Place the block of feta in the middle of the dish and drizzle over the remaining oil.

• Bake for 40 minutes or until the tomatoes are soft and the feta is golden.

• In the meantime, cook the pasta as per packet directions.

• Drain, reserving 1 cup of the pasta water.

• Mash the feta and tomatoes using a fork, then add the pasta.

• Mix until well combined, adding the pasta water as needed to create a rich and creamy sauce.

• Serve in bowls and sprinkle with chopped basil..
