Description

Throw up your hands and break out the kazoos, this viral feta pasta recipe has just been veganized! Creamy, savory, and full of tomatoey goodness, you’re not going to want to sit this recipe out.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 ounces of pasta (any shape)
  • Olive oil, to taste, divided
  • 16 ounces of cherry tomatoes
  • 4 large cloves of garlic, sliced thinly
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of pepper
  • 2 cups of chopped spinach
  • 1 block of vegan feta cheese (I used Violife)
  • 1 handful of sliced fresh basil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a baking dish, add the whole cherry tomatoes, garlic, salt, and pepper, and very lightly drizzle with a splash of olive oil. Mix well and bake for 27 minutes.
  3. While the tomatoes are baking, cook 8 ounces of pasta according to package instructions. Then rinse pasta, drizzle with olive oil to prevent sticking, and set aside.
  4. Remove the baking dish from the oven and mix in the chopped spinach. Place the entire block of vegan feta cheese in the middle of the tomatoes, pushing them aside to surround the block of vegan feta. Place in the oven uncovered and bake for 11 minutes until feta is softened, but not completely melted.
  5. Remove from oven, and using a large serving spoon, press down the feta cheese and mix it throughly with the tomatoes. Press down on the tomatoes with the spoon to pop most of them to allow their juices to combine with the cheese and create a tomato cream sauce.
  6. Add the cooked pasta and mix to combine.
  7. Top with sliced fresh basil and serve.

Notes

This dish is best enjoyed fresh out of the oven, but if you have leftovers they can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can reheat the vegan feta pasta in the microwave or oven. If needed, you may add additional water, oil, salt, pepper, or some garlic powder when reheating, as the flavors can dull over time.
