TikTok’s baked feta pasta is the new food craze

March 12, 2021


Basically, you bake feta and tomatoes in the oven before mixing it with pasta.

A new TikTok recipe has taken the food world by storm. People are creating a baked feta pasta, originally created by food blogger Jenni Häyrinen. She dubbed the dish “Uunifetapasta”, which is Finnish for oven-baked pasta. 

Basically, all you need to do to make it is to take a big block of feta cheese to a sheet pan and roasting it in their oven with tomatoes — and sometimes other vegetables — then mixing it all with pasta. 

The whole idea of this dish is its simplicity. It can also be spiced up, seeing as you can add any kind of vegetable or use any kind of pasta you prefer.

It really is super easy: Add some olive oil to the bottom of a pan then place a block of feta in the center and surround it with tomatoes. Toss in some garlic, red chilies, salt and pepper and roast the whole thing on 180 degrees for 15 minutes. Next, turn the heat up to 220 degrees and roast until you get some golden-brown coloring on the cheese and tomatoes. You can also turn on your oven’s grill for this part if you have one.

Once the baking process is done, you can add the baked ingredients to your favourite cooked pasta.
