I find it difficult to scroll through my Tik Tok feed without giving into the temptation of trying one of the delicious food trends, so I decided to take on the newest craze: baked feta pasta. 

As I was purchasing the ingredients, which include cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, olive oil, basil and a pasta of choice, I realized how little the recipe called for in order to make the delicious dish. Mixing the ingredients together was a simple process as well, and anyone, with little cooking experience, could successfully prepare this pasta.

The preparation took less time than the actual cooking. I started with pouring the cherry tomatoes in a baking dish, drizzling olive oil and adding a bit of salt and pepper seasoning. 

After mixing the tomatoes into the olive oil, I added a block of feta cheese in the middle surrounded by the tomatoes. Then I added a small covering of olive oil and pepper, and the dish was prepared to go into the oven. 

While I prepared the tomatoes, my pasta of choice, rigatoni, boiled.

After opening the oven, the scent of seasoned tomatoes immediately filled the room. The feta cheese was baked to a soft texture in order to smoothly mix into a sauce. The recipe then calls for additional seasoning of basil, oregano and garlic to add to the sauce.

I decided to smash my tomatoes into the mix instead of keeping them whole, which added an extra punch of flavor. Then, I added the cooked pasta into the base sauce.

Finally, the moment arrived to serve myself a portion of my final product. It was difficult to ruin the eye-pleasing visual of the pasta, scattered with colorful red tomatoes and a hint of green basil.

My first bite underwhelmed me a bit, as I was expecting a powerful reaction, but the simple taste was effective. The pasta, lightly covered in the tomato and feta mix, provided a savory flavor.

The perfect bite consisted of the creamiest forkful of pasta, a seasoned tomato and a pinch more pepper and basil, which satisfied my craving for this pasta immediately.

When I prepare this dish in the future, I will use fresh basil instead of dried as it would make the flavor more powerful and delicious. 

I recommend trying this trend yourself. Knowing that you can pull out your inner chef talents to create a delicious and simple product is a high reward.
