Earlier in the week I noticed internet articles and Instagram posts about a baked feta pasta recipe that was going viral on TikTok. I thought, “I like feta, I like tomatoes and I like pasta, therefore I will like this.”
I bought way too much feta and way to many grape tomatoes and asked Alex in a text if she and Andrew would like to come over for dinner soon to try this out. Either way I was planning on making it.
Andrew and Alex were able to come to dinner on Friday so I made it.
It was good, but not over the top good like I’d expected. Andrew said it was “solid” and Alex said it was good. Dean said it was good, but slightly dry (I didn’t add pasta water).
No matter, at least I saw Andrew and Alex again.
I took no photographs. The one at the top was stolen from the Internet.
Here’s the original recipe (pre-TikTok) and here’s the recipe I followed (although I added two small shallots and used jarred Calabrian peppers instead of the chopped chile peppers).
