I got on the Tik Tok bandwagon and made this terrific pasta dish (for the 3rd time!!) which went viral after a member posted it on TikTok. I also added some garlic and spinach because there is nothing better than spinach with Feta Cheese.
1/2 a head of garlic, each clove peeled and cut in half
2 small tubs of cherry tomatoes.
6 oz. brick of Sheep Head's Feta Cheese
One cup of cooked spinach
One box of Tri-color pasta
3/4 cup of pasta water
Salt & Pepper
Red Pepper Flakes
In a heavily oiled skillet, (I used a Lodge #8 skillet) lay down the tomatoes and then mix them all up so they all are coated with oil. Make room and lay the Feta down in the center. Scatter the garlic throughout the pan. Drizzle a little more Olive Oil on top. Salt & Pepper to taste. Red Pepper Flakes to taste. Bake on 375 for 40 minutes.
Meanwhile, put on the water for the pasta. Boil the pasta but make sure to save 3/4 of a cup of the pasta water. Time the pasta so it is done right about when the skillet in the oven is almost done.
Now that the 40 minutes is up, remove skillet from oven and using a potato masher, mash up the tomatoes a bit. Next, add the spinach and cook another 5 minutes. Drain the pasta saving the 3/4 cup of water. Remove skillet from oven, pour the pasta water right into the skillet and stir it all up.
Get a big bowl and put the cooked & drained pasta in it and then pour the contents of the skillet into the bowl and mix it all up.
I also add in some grated cheese to the mix!!
