I’m sure by now you’ve seen the viral TikTok recipe! Many of you asked me for the recipe on my Instagram, so I recreated the version I feel tasted best for my taste bud. The recipe was originally made by Finnish blogger Jenni Häyrinen who adapted it from Tiiu Piret. Now dubbed “TikTok Feta Pasta” or as “#uunifetapasta,” it is such a fun and easy way to make pasta. If you’ve got pre-teens or teenagers at home, this is a great recipe to get them excited about learning how to cook. I had a ton of fun adapting this baked feta pasta to our tastes and we wanted to share with you.
