Baked Feta pasta has become a viral trend that we're seeing everywhere. So, of course, we had to put our twist on the insanely popular recipe. In this version, we've turned it into a flavorful baked ziti. Feta and tomatoes are baked until the cheese is creamy and the tomatoes are bursting with flavor. Then, they're combined with pasta, Italian herbs, and mozzarella cheese. The ziti pasta absorbs the creamy tomato sauce to create a must-try baked pasta dish.
