Cooking Tips

  • Cooking Pasta: Cooking spaghetti in the Instant Pot is super fast which is why I like to use the pressure cooker. However you can cook spaghetti on the stove top if you prefer.
  • Blending: The key to getting the perfect feta pasta is combining the baked tomatoes and feta with the spaghetti while hot. This enables the pasta to absorb the flavors seamlessly, creating a harmonious blend. The heat from the just-baked tomatoes and melted feta works its magic, ensuring each bite is a burst of savory goodness. So, don’t rush it – let the warmth of the ingredients embrace your spaghetti for the ultimate flavor infusion.

Variations

  • Add Heat: Add crushed red pepper flakes for a spicy take on this tiktok baked feta pasta.
  • Tomatoes: We used cherry tomatoes but you can add roasted tomatoes instead. Simply dice them first into quarters.

Storage & Reheating Instructions

  • Fridge: Let the pasta dish cool, then use an airtight container to store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • Freeze: You can freeze baked feta pasta for 2-3 months. Cool the cooked pasta dish and then transfer to an airtight container before placing in the freezer.
  • Reheat: Thaw your feta pasta in the fridge overnight and reheat in the microwave for 2-3 minutes.

What To Serve With This Recipe?

  • Garlic Breadsticks: Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside – the perfect companion to scoop up the creamy feta pasta.
  • Mediterranean Salad: A refreshing mix of cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, and feta to balance the richness of the pasta.
  • Roasted Vegetables: Oven-roasted veggies like bell peppers and zucchini add a delightful crunch and earthiness.
  • Herbed Quinoa: A light and protein-packed option with fresh herbs to enhance the overall dining experience.
  • Caprese Skewers: Cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil drizzled with balsamic glaze – a bite-sized burst of flavor.
  • Lemon Garlic Asparagus: Bright, zesty asparagus spears perfectly balance the creamy notes of the pasta.

FAQ’S

Can I Use Another Cheese Instead of Feta?

Yes, you can use any cheese that melts well. Mozzarella, ricotta cheese , goat cheese or parmesan cheese are all great options. We prefer feta cheese.

What Oil Can I Use?

You can use any type of cooking oil you prefer for this dish. I used olive oil but you could also use vegetable, canola, or sunflower oil.

Can I Bake Feta Pasta In The Oven?

Yes, you can make baked feta pasta in the oven. Simply follow the instructions, and add the spaghetti into the feta and tomato baking dish rather than the Instant Pot. Pop back into the oven for five to ten minutes and bake.
