The food trend taking over Tiktok and beyond? An oven baked tomato feta pasta.
Originally a cheese-tactic recipe, we’ve given this a Soulful twist and made it friendly for those following a plant-based or lactose free diet.
We love how little washing up it creates, and how easy it is to make.
You can prepare this pasta dish in advance by prepping all of the ingredients in a baking dish and covering until you’re ready to bake. Another great way to save time and food waste is to use leftover cooked pasta. it cuts down the cooking time and really gives your leftovers a face lift.
