For The Pasta

  1. Put a pot of water on to boil and cook the pasta according to the back of the package.

For The Feta Cheese and Tomatoes

  1. In a 9x13 baking dish add the tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, oregano, parsley, red pepper flakes, pepper, and salt. Coat with most of the olive oil, reserving 1 to 2 tablespoons for the feta cheese. Stir these ingredients together.

  2. Add the block of feta cheese into the middle of the baking dish. Pour the remaining olive oil on top of the feta cheese. Place into the preheat 450℉ oven for 25-35 minutes.
