  • 1 pint Cherry Tomatoes
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 5 cloves Garlic smashed
  • 12 leaves Basil sliced
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 8 ounce Feta Cheese Block or crumbles
  • 15-20 ounces Tortellini Pasta
  • ¼ cup Parmesan Cheese grated, to add before serving


  • Preheat oven to 400° F.
  • In a 9" square baking dish, add the cherry tomatoes, garlic cloves, basil, salt and pepper and toss. Place the block of feta into the center of the tomato mixture and drizzle the tomato mixture and the top of the feta with olive oil. 
  • Bake in your preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the tomatoes have burst and the feta is golden on top. 
  • Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the tortellini pasta according to package instructions.
  • Once cooked, drain the pasta water reserving about ½ cup. Add the cooked pasta to the baked tomatoes and feta and stir until completely combined. If it looks a little dry, stir in the reserved pasta water.
  • Garnish with more fresh basil and grated Parmesan cheese before serving.  Enjoy!
