Greek baked feta pasta is made with feta cheese, grape tomatoes, olives, artichokes, spinach, Italian spices and pasta. It comes together in one dish and makes for a delicious meal.
I’ve been seeing this feta pasta trend ALL over the internet lately and I just had to try it for myself! I knew that I wanted to add a couple extra ingredients to add more nutrition and make it a little more balanced and the end result was so good! I’ve already made it twice and even the leftovers are good!
The original recipe calls for tomatoes, feta, a few spices and pasta. I took things up a notch by using Sunset Sugar Bombs® grape tomatoes, which are ripened and packed on the vine for optimal flavor. They are a beautiful red color, and have a sweet taste, pleasant aroma and crunchy texture.
To give this pasta recipe even more flavor and food nutrition, I added fresh spinach, basil artichoke hearts, and kalamata olives. I just love the flavors of a good greek salad (or any greek food for that matter!) which is where I got the inspiration to add to the original feta pasta recipe.
Tomatoes are a staple in a greek salad and in my house! I always have a container of Sunset® grape or cherry tomatoes for adding to salads, pasta dishes like this one, or just snacking on with hummus. I love how flavorful they are and that all of Sunset’s products are Non-GMO Project Verified. This means they are developed the old-fashioned way, through natural plant breeding without any additives.
