Baked Feta Cheese Pasta made with Bucatini

On the menu tonight – Baked Feta Pasta!

Going through the fridge, I was trying to figure out what to do a block of feta cheese. I stumbled upon this recipe and knew I had to make it – I’m glad that I did, it is SO good!

There aren’t that many ingredients, olive oil, feta cheese (of course), cherry tomatoes, pasta, basil and a few spices. That said, use good ingredients because there is nowhere to hide regarding flavor.

In addition to being delicious, it doesn’t take very long to make, 45 minutes. After seasoning the tomatoes with olive oil, salt, and pepper, put them in the oven for 30 minutes. After the time is up, I flipped the feta, added some red pepper flakes and put it back in the oven for another 15 minutes. Once the time is up, serve and garnish with basil.

I hope the next time you aren’t sure what to make, try this quick, inexpensive, delicious, and vegetarian meal. Let me know how your version turns out.

While the tomatoes are baking chiffonade the basil and start the water boiling


After 30 minutes, raise the temperature of the oven to 450 degrees, turn the block of feta over, and add the crushed red pepper
