  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes 450 g
  • 1/4 cup olive oil plus an extra tablespoon for drizzling
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 8 oz feta cheese block 200 g
  • pinch red chili flakes, optional
  • pinch dried basil, optional
  • 4 garlic cloves, cut into half
  • handful baby spinach leaves, optional
  • 8 oz pasta, cooked and drained with pasta water reserved 250 g


  • Preheat the oven to 400 F (205 C).
  • Place the cherry tomatoes on the bottom of an oven safe dish. Add the 1/4 cup of olive oil, salt, and pepper and toss to coat well.
  • Place the feta cheese block on the middle of the tomato layer and sprinkle with red chili flakes and dried basil if using. Bake for 35 minutes until tomatoes have burst and softened and feta is starting to turn brown.
  • As soon as the pan is out of the oven, add baby spinach if using, and with a serving spoon, mix the feta cheese with the tomatoes until melted and creamy.
  • Add the drained pasta, and toss to combine. If you like it more saucy, add up to 1/2 cup of the reserved pasta water.
  • Enjoy immediately!
