I have been looking for ways to use some of my garden tomatoes in ways I hadn’t before. I’ve been lucky to get so many this year I’ve already frozen a bunch, but I also want to use some fresh right now. I saw a recipe for a dish similar to this somewhere, but I couldn’t find it so I just did what I remembered and added my own spin as usual.
You will need:
- Feta cheese block
- Pasta (I used chick pea pasta)
- S&P, garlic, Italian seasoning
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
- Cherry tomatoes or regular tomatoes chopped ( I used my garden orange cherry tomatoes and also my little red garden tomatoes)
To start boil your water for the pasta. Set your oven to 400*.
Next I sprayed my banking pan with EVOO put the feta in the middle and surrounded that with the Cherry tomatoes and other tomatoes.
I then added the seasonings and EVOO. I did this to taste for us. Then I baked it for 30-35 minutes until the tomatoes and feta are soft. (I cook my pasta the last 15ish minutes this is baking and drain the pasta once done) Pull the cheese and tomatos out and mix and smash it together. I used a wooden spoon to do this.
Add the cooked pasta.
Mix in the pasta gently. Make sure to coat all the pasta.
I serve it with a little parmesan cheese on top.
We also thought it would be good to add ground sausage, artichokes, shrimp, or anything you might like. I like it just the way it was.
Let me know how you like it 😁
