I tried that viral pasta

If you are active on social media, you have probably seen this viral feta cheese pasta video. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this recipe, so I decided to try this recipe out. Spoiler alert: It is delicious!


  • 400 gr/14 oz cherry tomatoes
  • 500 gr/17 oz pasta
  • 1 block feta cheese
  • 1 onion
  • 5-6 garlic cloves
  • (extra virgin) olive oil
  • Pinch of Italian seasoning to taste
  • Salt, pepper and chili powder to taste

This recipe couldn’t be any easier! In the basic recipe, you put a few handfuls of cherry tomatoes in an oven dish, drizzle some olive oil on it and season it with salt and pepper. Put a block of feta cheese in the middle of the pan, drizzle it with more olive oil. I wanted to spice it up a little by adding some onions and garlic cloves. I also added a little chili powder in it for a little spice. Bake it in the oven for 40-45 minutes at 200 °C/392 °F. While the feta was baking, I cooked some penne pasta.

After baking the feta-tomato mixture for about 40 minutes, this is how the dish looked like:

After the feta was done baking, I mashed the feta and the garlic and I mixed everything together into a creamy sauce. If your sauce is too thick, you can mix in a little pasta water to thin it out. When the sauce is ready, add in your pasta, and dinner is ready!

I hope that you’re going to try out this recipe! If you do please share it with me! Sidenote: apologies for the really bad food pictures. I’m still pretty new to photography.

Yours truly,
