  1. Healthy Recipe, Baked Feta Pasta


    Have you heard about the social media craze around Tik Tok’s baked feta pasta? We’ve tried to come up with a reasonably healthy alternative, and this does a good job — although you’ll have to decide for yourself if the fat content is worth the indulgence! It’s easy and yummy, and WAY healthier than most versions. From Sammi Brondo.


    • 1 medium spaghetti squash
    • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 2 pints cherry or grape tomatoes
    • 8-ounce block feta cheese
    • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
    • 8 ounces chickpea pasta, any shape
    • Fresh basil
    • Salt
    • Pepper



    1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
    2. Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out inner flesh and seeds.
    3. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil on spaghetti squash and place face down on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes, until a fork can easily pierce through the skin.
    4. While spaghetti squash is in the oven, add tomatoes to a baking dish. Drizzle remaining 1/2 cup olive oil over tomatoes and add garlic, salt, and pepper. Move tomatoes to the edges of the dish and place the block of feta in the center.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes, until tomatoes burst and feta is nearly melted. Once done, turn the oven to broil and broil for an additional 5 minutes.
    6. While tomatoes and feta are in the oven, cook and drain the pasta.
    7. Remove tomatoes and feta from the oven and mix well. Scrape strands from the spaghetti squash and add 1/2 of the squash to the baking dish. Add the pasta and mix well to combine. Garnish with fresh chopped basil.
    8. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
