A Finnish blogger’s recipe for baked feta and tomato pasta has gone viral on TikTok and may even be causing feta and tomato shortages as people rush to try it.
The story behind the TikTok feta pasta
The recipe is incredibly simple. Season tomatoes and feta with olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and oregano, bake it all in the oven, and then mix fresh basil and just cooked pasta into the hot, gooey, caramelized result.
Now the dish has made an international comeback on English-language TikTok, and people love it just as much as the Fins did in 2019.
Variations on the feta pasta dish
There are new variations being made, with standard, logical additions like olives, goat cheese, and pesto.
As well as some slightly horrifying ones, like this one from TikTok user @thehungerdiaries, who decided to sub out the tomatoes for strawberries. While some viewers did think this sounded delicious, most considered this a food crime of the highest order.
