Are you on Tik Tok? Well for me I am not, I have been thinking about it last year but decided I will just stick to my traditional blogging platform and Instagram so I can concentrate more on why I am here for, to share recipes and educate the online world specially when it comes to the Filipino cuisine. Other platforms might steer me out of track specially when I don’t have that much time allocated for it since I just do blogging on the side and not a profession, it’s just more of a passion for me, hence I cook a lot. Now what does TikTok have to do with this post? Well, this recipe for today is a viral recipe in TikTok made famous in Finland by Liemessa where pasta is prepared simply by baking feta and tomatoes then when ready the cooked pasta is tossed on it. It has been viral for quite some time now but since I am not in TikTok, I was late in the ball game, I just knew this when my daughter requested for it.
Going back to our recipe today the Baked Feta Pasta or Uunifetapasta as named by Jenni from Liemessa. A simple recipe even a young kid can make, just put everything in an oven proof container, bake, then you have a pasta sauce, all you need at this point is toss your cooked pasta on it then serve. This pasta had dominated the online world early this year and everyone seemed to be cooking it specially in Finland where feta cheese sales went up 300% there and the shops were running out of baked feta pasta ingredients, luckily here in NZ we still have the ingredients readily available in supermarkets hence I am trying this now.
I love baked Feta and you can’t go wrong with past and cheese, esp. if you are a carb. addict. 🙂
Yeah, that’s a truly viral recipe! Indeed, I’ve been enjoying baked feta for a few years (long before it became trendy), and it’s super delicious, especially with pasta.
Isn’t it amazing that feta cheese sales went up 300% after the dish went viral in Finland. Certainly easy enough to make.
Interesting! Honestly, it looks good, but I’d be picking out tomato skins. I’d much rather use canned crushed or diced tomatoes…
Tomatoes? But I’m a meat person. Just had pasta with meat balls the other day.
