Day 353: Baked Feta Pasta

This is a super simple pasta recipe that you really can't mess up. Plus, most of the time used is for the feta and tomatoes baking!

You can use whatever pasta is your favorite. I used penne, but I also love rigatoni. Whole wheat pasta also will work just fine!

If you don't have feta as a block, I've found that crumbled feta is also a good alternative. I definitely recommend getting a block of feta though.

You can even add extra veggies to this pasta. Broccoli, mushrooms, and spinach are all delicious add-ins!

Make sure to top your baked feta pasta with fresh basil leaves and a sprinkling of grated parmesan!
