TikTok Pasta

A while ago I tried the TikTok pasta recipe that took social media by storm. It’s a pasta with baked tomato, basil and feta; I added sliced avocado too. Delicious!

TikTok Pasta

Christine Coates


  • ½-1 x 500 g packet penne pasta

  • 1 x 500 g punnet baby tomatoes, rinsed

  • 1 large block soft feta (or 3 feta wheels)

  • 1 x 100 g bag fresh basil, rinsed

  • Garlic to taste, crushed

  • 1 chilli, chopped or 1 tbsp (15 ml) garlic and chilli paste (optional)

  • Mixed herbs, to taste

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Lashings of olive oil

  • 1-2 avocados, diced


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. While preparing the sauce, cook the pasta according to the package instructions.

  2. For the sauce, place the tomatoes, feta, basil, garlic, chilli, mixed herbs, salt, pepper and olive oil in an ovenproof dish. Mix very well.

  3. Bake for about 45 minutes, until the skin of the tomatoes bursts and the feta is soft. Remove from the oven.

  4. Mash the feta and tomatoes a little and mix again well with the other ingredients. Add the avocados and mix slightly.

  5. Spoon in the cooked pasta, adding in a ladle or two of the pasta water if needed, until a sauce is created.

  6. Enjoy!
