TikTok recipes may become viral for several reasons, but the simplest are generally the most popular. This feta pasta recipe, inspired by a social media trend, is easy to make and full of flavor with cheese, heirloom tomatoes, and herbs.
– 1 pound pasta– 8-ounce block of feta cheese– 12 ounces heirloom tomatoes, halved– ½ teaspoon salt– ½ teaspoon black pepper– ⅛ teaspoon red pepper flake– ¼ cup olive oil– 2 cloves garlic, minced– Fresh herbs, for serving
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Olive oil, garlic, salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, and feta should all be put in a baking dish.
Combine well. If you want it golden brown, bake it for 35 minutes.
Cook the pasta until it reaches the al dente stage while the feta is baking.
Put aside one cup of the water from the pasta, then drain it and put it aside.
