Ingredients

  • 20 ounces cherry tomatoes
  • 10.5 ounces feta cheese brick
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tablespoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes optional
  • 10 ounces pasta (spaghetti, bowtie, penne, linguine)
  • Optional basil leaves for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place tomatoes in a 13 x 9 casserole dish. Add garlic and 2 tablespoons of oil. Stir to coat the tomatoes.
  • Place the brick of feta in center of tomatoes. Top with spices and drizzle with remaining oil.
