Serves 3 as a complete meal
500 Grams Cherry Tomatoes
1 Small Onion - sliced
3 Big Garlic Cloves - finely chopped½ Cup Olive Oil
¼ Teaspoon Sea Salt
¼ Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
¼ Teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1/4 Teaspoon Red Chilly Flakes
200 Grams Feta Cheese
225 Grams Dried Pasta - of your choice
A handful of basil leaves- cut into chiffonades
MethodPlace cherry tomatoes, onion, and garlic cloves in a baking Pyrex dish in a single layer. Drizzle 1/3 cup of olive oil on it.
Season with sea salt, black pepper, chilly flakes, fresh basil chiffonades and Italian seasoning, give it a good mix.Make some space in the center of the dish, place the block of feta cheese, drizzle the remaining olive oil on it. Cover the dish with a foil and bake in the preheated oven 180°C for 35 minutes, you will see the tomatoes are bursting and bubbling.While the dish is baking, let's boil the pasta as per the package instructions . Drain, reserve about a ¼ cup of the starchy pasta water, if needed later ( I did not use it).After 35 minutes, remove the baking dish from the oven.
The tomatoes would have burst open and the cheese should be soft and melty. Mash the cheese and tomatoes with the help of a fork or spatula, then mix everything together. Add the cooked pasta and roughly torn basil leaves.
Toss gently until the pasta is evenly coated with the creamy sauce.It 's creamy and cheesy comfort food.
