I think my favorite thing about Tik Tok is the creative recipes I see people try. This was one of the first ones I ever saw after joining Tik Tok and man was it excellent! Not to mention easy!
- About 20 cherry or grape tomatoes
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- Salt & pepper
- 1 block Greek feta cheese
- 1/4 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
- 12 ounces bowtie dried pasta
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
In a deep baking dish, combine the tomatoes, garlic and 1/4 cup of the olive oil. Sprinkle with some salt and pepper and toss to coat. Place the feta cheese in the center of the tomatoes and garlic, top with the remaining olive oil, and sprinkle the entire dish with Italian seasoning.
Bake for about 40 minutes, until the cheese is golden and the tomatoes have burst their skins.
Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to package directions until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of the pasta water and then drain the pasta.
Mash the feta and tomatoes with a fork and mix until evenly combined.
Mix the sauce with pasta, adding the reserved pasta water as needed if it looks a little dry.
Taste and season with additional salt and pepper, if desired.
To serve, divide among bowls and top with basil or parsley.
