How long does it keep?

This baked feta pasta is best served as soon as you’ve made it, but leftovers will keep well in the fridge for up to 3 days. It can be reheated in the microwave or on the stovetop until warmed through.

If reheating, you may want to add in a little oil to loosen it back up.

What’s the best pasta to use?

I used riccioli pasta to make this, but most kinds will work well. Choose something with some shape or ridges, like shells or fusilli, so that it catches all of the delicious sauce.

What do you serve it with?

This baked pasta is perfect to serve by itself, but it’s great with some side veggies, salad or crusty bread. Try it with:

Tips!

  • For more flavor you could use more garlic for a more garlicky taste. If you’d like a spicy touch you can sprinkle in some red pepper flakes over the pasta.
  • Instead of feta, you can also make this with goats cheese.
  • It’s best to use a block of feta for this recipe. If you use crumbled feta, place it altogether in the center of the baking dish.
