How to prepare this recipe
We did a little research and discovered the original recipe and where it all started.
The idea for this pasta recipe with feta cheese and tomatoes belongs to a blogger from Finland, Liemessa. She did it for the first time in 2019 and was so successful that Finnish supermarkets were left without a face.
The recipe for pasta with feta cheese and cherry tomatoes is one of the simplest I’ve prepared so far. You need cherry tomatoes, the best you can find. Try to have a red color as intense as possible and be firm to the touch.
Use extra virgin olive oil because it is both healthy and tasty. Be sure that you purchase real feta cheese, because most of the feta cheeses is wrongly labeled as feta and has nothing to do with it. On the packaging of the cheese we have to see the PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) marking, this will ensure the quality and confirm that it is authentic from Greece.

After the sauce for this pasta recipe with feta cheese and cherry tomatoes is ready, mix everything well with a spoon. You need to get a creamy and very tasty sauce. Then add fresh basil or even parsley.
You can put any kind of pasta you want in this sauce. I use pasta what I just have for moment at home. Sometimes pens, sometimes spaghetti, but any others are very good.
Of course you can omit pasta and add grilled meat, fish or seafood. This sauce is wonderful as well with grilled vegetables.
