  1. Preheat oven to 200°C / 400 °F.

  7. Add drained pasta to baking dish and stir until each pasta is coated in the creamy sauce. Taste and season with more pepper if needed. Serve immediately.


  • Use whatever pasta shape you like!
  • Use a whole block of feta instead of crumbled feta for best results.
  • Make sure your baking dish is the right size. If it's too large and there is too much room between the tomatoes, they might dry out.
  • Substitute feta cheese with a vegan version to make this dish dairy free! Just make sure you don't add the cheese to the baking dish until the last 15 minutes or it will burn.
  • Omit shrimp or replace it with other proteins of choice to suit your dietary needs!
