Baked Feta Pasta


TikTok has yet again delivered a damn delicious viral recipe! This Baked Feta Pasta dish is a must try for all pasta lovers. My stomach is still expanding as we speak due to a lack of self control while indulging earlier today. This pasta recipe is a creamy, irresistible and worthy of all the hype on social media.

How to make the famous TikTok recipe

First, let’s talk about the feta, you can use crumbled or brick feta. The main concern would be if you want the sauce to be super creamy make sure the feta is derived from sheep’s milk. Personally, I did not have the brick feta on hand this morning and used my crumbled feta from cows milk. Don’t fret, either way this pasta recipe truly is fool proof. Don’t over think making this delicious baked feta pasta and simply use what you already have on hand.

Next, You can make this pasta dish with or without adding any extra liquids (reserved pasta water or heavy cream). Personally, I use 1/2 cup reserved pasta water to aid in a creamier texture. Adding heavy cream is also wonderful, but this step is not necessary. My suggestion, play around with it till you make the pasta the best to your taste buds.

This TikTok recipe has won the hearts of millions around the world!

  1. This was SO good. IDK what took me so long to finally make this recipe, but I had all the ingredients last night and decided it was time. Super flavorful, and easy recipe to follow. I did add some more garlic, and mixed in fresh basil at the end. It was so creamy without any of the usual alfredo sauce ingredients This is a keeper!

  2. It was fantastic and so simple to make! Will be making it again real soon!
