The early months of 2021 were dominated by one recipe and one recipe alone: baked feta pasta, a.k.a. “TikTok pasta.” The recipe’s viral nature came no doubt due to its simplicity: take a brick of feta, surround it with cherry tomatoes, add oil, salt and pepper, bake it, and then mix the resulting ooey-gooey, cheesy sauce with cooked pasta. Easy, straightforward, and undeniably delicious.
At this point, however, you’ve either already tried (and loved) TikTok’s famous baked feta pasta, or you didn’t find it mouth-watering enough to make at home. In either case, we’ve mixed up the recipe, with a hearty serving of leafy greens and a couple of hot peppers for added punch. We think it’s just different enough that you’ll want to try it again with our additions, or try it for the first time!
