Baked Feta Pasta with Tomatoes

2 pints of salad tomatoes (grape or cherry)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Garlic Clove
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
8 oz. block of feta cheese
kosher salt
cracked pepper
red pepper flakes (to desired taste)
10 oz. pasta, gluten free works well too

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Using a casserole dish sprayed with olive oil spray or coated cast iron pan, add 2 pints of grape tomatoes into dish.
Place one block of feta cheese direction in the center of the tomatoes. Sprinkle with chopped garlic and basil.
Sprinkle entire dish with kosher or sea salt, black pepper and then drizzle with olive oil.

Place dish in oven for 45 minutes or until the tomatoes burst and are easily smashed.

Meanwhile prepare the pasta. I also like to add grilled and sliced chicken.

Remove tomato mixture from oven, mix well, stir in pasta.
