How can you possibly go wrong with this vegetarian recipe. It has beans and eggs, with some mushrooms thrown in and is the easiest thing to make. I usually have it on my vegetarian nights and I have refined the original recipe that I got from Good Foods.

This recipe is all over the internet. Finish food blogger Jenni Häyrinen shared the baked feta pasta recipe back in 2019 and now everyone is making it. The original recipe uses tomatoes but this one has mushrooms and spinach and it is so easy to make.


Chop up mushrooms

Chopped Mushrooms

Add sliced red onions, whole garlic, thyme (fresh is good but dry if you don’t have fresh), and a quarter cup of olive oil (I used extre virgin). Put it all in a baking dish and mix it. Make space in the middle and add your block of feta cheese. Drizzle olice oil on top of the feta and sprinkle some dry oregano.

Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile boil your pasta.

When the baking is done (mushrooms will be red, onions and garlic will be soft and feta will have melted), remove the garlic, peel and crush them and add them back. Mix it all together with a ladlefull of pasta water to bring it all together.

Add your spinach and pasta. Mix it and voila! There is you Baked Feta Pasta!
