TikTok’s Viral Baked Feta PDO Pasta Recipe

The bare minimum that you need for this recipe is cherry tomatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper, a block of Feta PDO and pasta. But adding garlic, fresh herbs and lemon zest is a hands-off way to take the flavor up a notch. For our favorite version of TikTok baked feta pasta, you’ll need:


  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Crushed garlic
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 block Feta PDO cheese
  • Dried oregano
  • Zest of one lemon
  • Pasta
  • Fresh basil

The quantities can vary based on the size of your baking dish, so just eyeball the ingredients as you cook and use your best judgment.


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
2. Add the tomatoes to a baking dish. Drizzle them with olive oil and toss until they’re evenly coated.
3. Add a few cloves of crushed garlic to the dish. Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over the tomatoes.
4. Nestle the block of Feta PDO in the center of the tomatoes. Drizzle olive oil onto the feta, then top it with dried oregano and lemon zest. You can also add other spices, like crushed red pepper flakes, if you’d like.
5. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until the tomatoes are roasted and the feta is soft and melty. While it bakes, boil a large pot of salted water and cook the pasta of your choice according to package instructions.
6. Remove the dish from the oven and add chopped or torn basil to the top. Use a spoon to break up the cheese and stir everything together to create a sauce.
7. Add the cooked pasta and mix until evenly coated.
