Ingredients

  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 medium white onion minced
  • 8 oz. block feta
  • 8 oz. pasta any kind
  • 1/2 cup pasta water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup kalamata olives chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  • Pour 2 pints of cherry tomatoes into a 9x13-inch casserole dish. 
  • Drizzle olive oil over the cherry tomatoes and toss until all the tomatoes are coated in oil. 
  • Add the balsamic vinegar, garlic, and onion to the baking dish and toss. 
  • Next, create 2 wells in the baking dish by moving the tomatoes aside. Cut the block of feta in half diagonally and place them into the baking dish.
  • Bake at 400ºF for 40 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add pasta. Cook the pasta until it is cooked to al dente. 
  • Before pouring the pasta into a strainer, remove 1 cup of pasta water from the pot and set it aside. Then, strain pasta and set it aside. 
  • Once the timer goes off, remove the dish from the oven and smash the feta and cooked tomatoes with a fork or spatula. Make sure that all of the tomatoes have burst. Then, add in 1/2 cup pasta water and stir everything together to create a creamy feta sauce.
  • Finally, add the cooked pasta to the casserole dish and mix until the pasta is coated in sauce. 
  • Add basil, mint, and olives to the casserole dish and toss the baked feta pasta one last time. 
  • Serve with fresh cracked black pepper and enjoy.
