Spicy, Lemony Baked Feta Pasta

SERVES: 4—6 PREP: 10 minutes TOTAL TIME: 40 minutes

Inspired by the viral TikTok pasta dish but with a lusciously cheesy, spicy twist!

Even before Cravings got a TikTok, I had seen the viral baked feta pasta recipe EVERYWHERE. Originated by Finnish blogger Jenni Häyrinen as "uunifetapasta," it is a one-pan wonder, roasting tomatoes with a whole block of feta cheese until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the tomatoes can be smashed into a sauce. Even though I'm not normally a huge fan of feta, I had to make my own version—that was spicier! The kick comes from Thai bird chiles. There's lemon zest and juice to complement the tanginess of the feta, and a nice crunch from toasted pine nuts. It's a twist on my spicy, lemony roasted tomato pasta, and you can use any pasta shape you like!

  • 2 pounds cherry tomatoes

  • 1 (8-oz.) block feta

  • ½ cup olive oil, divided

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 pound bow tie pasta (or pasta of your choice)

  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 1 teaspoon finely minced Thai bird or other fresh hot chiles (seeded, if you like) plus more for garnish

  • ½ cup lightly toasted pine nuts

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  • + finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon (1 ½ teaspoons zest, 2–3 tablespoons juice)
