Kosterina’s [Seriously Upgraded] Tik Tok Baked Feta Pasta

About this recipe:

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)
