Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 425˚F.
  • Cook macaroni according to the package directions.
  • In the meantime, place block of feta in the center of a 9x13 baking dish.
  • Add tomatoes, roasted red peppers, and olives around the feta; season everything with oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper. Stir in the garlic.
  • Drizzle tomatoes and top of feta with olive oil; gently stir around the tomatoes to coat with the oil.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until feta is soft and tomatoes are bursting.
  • Remove from oven.
  • With the back of a spoon, press down on the block of feta cheese to make it creamy; then gently stir everything together until completely combined.
  • Stir in sliced basil and parsley.
  • Drain pasta.
  • Add pasta to the feta sauce; stir to combine.
  • Taste for salt and adjust accordingly. Some feta is saltier, especially the ones sold in brine, so you may or may not need to add more salt.
  • Garnish pasta with more basil and parsley.
  • Serve.

Notes

  • WW POINTS: If you use low carb pasta and fat free feta cheese, points are reduced down to just 3 per serving.
