Our executive chef Anna Gass gives this trending TikTok recipe a serious upgrade by swapping out regular olive oil with our beloved Garlic Olive Oil and tossing in fresh spinach, heirloom cherry tomatoes, oregano and shrimp. This dish turns into a creamy and comforting pasta within 40 minutes.

  • 1/4 cup + 3 Tablespoons Kosterina Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 10 ounce block of feta
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
  • 2 pints (20 ounces) heirloom cherry tomatoes
  • 3 to 4 springs of fresh oregano
  • 2 Tablespoon minced garlic, divided
  • 1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes (optional)
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, shredded
  • 1.5 lbs medium shell pasta (or any pasta of choice)

  4. Pour in the cherry tomatoes to surround the feta. Add 1 tablespoon of minced garlic.

  5. Place the oregano springs throughout.

  6. Place in the oven for 35 minutes.

  7. While the feta is baking, make the pasta according to pasta directions, drain and set aside.

  8. Place the shrimp in a small bowl and add the rest of the garlic and chili flakes if using. Also, chop up the spinach and set aside.

  9. Remove the feta after 35 minutes and place the shrimp around the feta, lightly pushing them into the oil and tomatoes to partially submerge.

  10. Return baking dish to the oven for 5 minutes until shrimp is cooked through and pink.

  11. Remove from the oven and crush the feta block and begin to mix it into the hot oil and bruised tomatoes. Pick out the oregano stems.

  12. Add the spinach and mix to wilt it.

  13. Add the cooked pasta and mix to throughly combine all the ingredients.
