• Originally called UuniFetaPasta, this simple yet deliciously indulgent dish caused a feta shortage in Finland due to its immense popularity.

    INGREDIENTS

    • 300 grams baby tomatoes 
    • cup olive oil 
    • 1 garlic clove, grated 
    • ½ tsp. dried origanum 
    • 2 wheels feta 
    • 500 grams penne pasta 
    • ½ cup basil 

    METHOD

    PREHEAT oven to 200℃.

    TOSS tomatoes, ¼ cup olive oil, garlic and origanum in an oven-proof dish and season with salt and pepper. Arrange the wheels of feta in the middle of the tomatoes and drizzle over the remaining olive oil. 

    BAKE for 30-40 minutes or until tomatoes have burst and feta has melted. 

    COOK pasta according to package instructions. Drain, reserving ¼ cup of the pasta water. Mix the pasta and pasta water into the tomatoes. Top with basil and enjoy. 

     TIP: Tomatoes can often produce an acidic flavour while cooking. To offset this, add 1 – 2 tsp. of brown sugar to the sauce.
