If you’re a regular on TikTok you likely would have seen this recipe pop up in your For You feed. It’s SO very easy to make (just bake it!) and just look at that beautiful roasted garlic and cheesy baked fetta cheese sauce – drool-worthy. Pass the crusty bread, please!
Baked Fetta Pasta Recipe
- Cherry tomatoes (1 to 2 punnets, depending on how much you love tomatoes)
- 5 cloves of garlic, left whole and NOT peeled
- 1 block of fetta cheese
- Olive oil
- Dried oregano
- Fresh basil leaves
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 190°C. In a baking dish, combine cherry tomatoes and garlic.
Step 2: Drizzle with olive oil, season with dried oregano and pepper. Stir to combine.
Step 3: Add the block of fetta cheese, drizzle it with olive oil and season.
Step 4: Roast in the oven for 30 – 40 minutes or until tomatoes have blistered nicely. Meanwhile, towards the end of the roasting time, boil your pasta on the stovetop.
Step 5: Carefully squeeze out the hot garlic from their skins and lay them on top of the fetta cheese. Using a fork, carefully fork mash the tomatoes, fetta cheese and garlic and stir together to make a creamy sauce.
Step 6: Add the cooked and drained pasta to the baking dish, along with a handful of fresh basil leaves. Stir through and serve.
Voila! DINNER IS DONE, thanks TikTok!

Let us know if you give it a go, we’d love to hear. NOTE: I suggest holding back on seasoning with salt because fetta cheese is a salty cheese. Cook with caution and taste the baked fetta pasta once done and add salt if you need!
