Do you remember my recipe for Grilled Vegetarian Wrap #tortillatrend ? Here’s a new, even more viral recipe: Baked Feta Pasta! And if you’ve never tasted it before, go for it! It’s super good and it only takes 5 minutes to prepare.

What is Baked Feta Pasta?

As its name suggests it is a pasta recipe with feta.

All you have to do is place the feta in a glass dish, add cherry tomatoes, some herbs, a little olive oil and it goes straight in the oven. Then we serve it with pasta (see it video).

There are two versions to cook the pasta :

  • Cooking pasta with feta: There is a variation where you take a dish large enough to place the pasta first on the bottom, then the feta, cherry tomatoes, herbs and olive oil. Then add water to cover all the pasta and bake for about 30 minutes.
  • Cooking pasta separately : This is the method I chose. Here the pasta is cooked separately and mixed with the baked feta afterwards.

There are also plenty of possible variations, replacing feta with mozzarella or cherry tomatoes with mushrooms or other vegetables.

Why is Baked Feta Pasta so viral?

Not much people know that this trend comes from Finland where a blogger, Jenni Häyrinen, posted this recipe under the name Uuni Feta Pasta, the #uunifetapasta was then taken up on social networks (see the original recipe of Uuni Feta Pasta in Finnish). The funny thing about this story is that this recipe was published in 2019!

So why has this recipe become so viral on social networks in particular onTikTok but also Instagram and Facebook? And why in 2021 only, 2 years after its publication?

The reason certainly comes from our lifestyle which has drastically changed due to the pandemic: many people work at home, children sometimes also school at home and therefore we are all looking for simple, and quick recipes to please the whole family. This recipe is ideal for that: 5 minutes of preparation, all in the oven and the meal is ready!
