One-Dish Feta Pasta

One-Dish Feta Pasta

Remember the viral baked feta pasta that took social media by storm? The original recipe takes 40-45 minutes in the oven — and that's just for the feta and tomatoes to cook! So, we decided to make a one-dish version that takes less than 15 minutes, start-to-finish, in the microwave, using the Large Deep Dish.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Ingredients

  • 4 oz spaghetti, broken in half
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 oz feta
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

Preparation

  1. Place all ingredients in the Anyday Large Deep Dish. 
  2. Cover with lid (knob lifted). Cook in the microwave for 13-14 minutes.
  3. Toss the pasta to combine the feta with the remaining starchy pasta water. (It will thicken and coat the noodles with a creamy sauce.)
  4. Season with salt and pepper and enjoy.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Swap spaghetti for your favorite pasta shape.
  • Add capers, olives, and anchovies for a puttanesca-style sauce. 
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
