Baked Feta and Tomato Pasta with Grilled Chicken

So I had to hop on this trend. Baked feta and tomato pasta is insanely simple to make, and has loads of fresh and vibrant flavors going on.

Feta cheese, tomatoes and garlic are baked, then mashed together to make this creamy sauce, then paste and fresh basil is added.

To put my own spin on it, I added some grilled chicken and asparagus to maket his a well balanced meal!

My wife sent me this video on IG reels and it was simliar to this. cherry tomatoes baked in olive oil with feta cheese. Then fresh basil and cooked pasta is added at the end.

Sounds easy enough!

With a little oregano and garlic added before tossing it in the oven, you basically have a easy to make tomato sauce and feta cheese to add a creamy texture and bright flavor to the mix.

Once its baked everything just melts together with a little help of a fork.

I needed to add something a little extra to this, so I grilled up some chicken and asparagus to add to the baked feta and tomato pasta.

Becuase a dish like this will leave me craving some protein. Either on the side or on top mixed it.

But mixed in is so much better!
