Are you looking for a delicious, simple, fast-made pasta recipe you have never had before? This heavenly, dreamy, creamy coconut feta pasta is one for the books.

Have you heard about the famous TikTok pasta, which was viral early this year? I thought it looked pretty good when I first saw it, but I was not going crazy about it. Then it went viral on Instagram, too, and everyone was freaking out, so I thought I should give it a try, but of course, make my own thing. All I saw were the ingredients, and I was immediately inspired to make my Caribbean feta dream come true. This recipe is so simple, and it sure won't disappoint you!
If you are a beginner in the kitchen, you need to make this one. You can't fail with this delicious recipe. You don't need much preparation time; all you have to cook is the pasta and turn on the oven. Imagine your clean kitchen. You're doing whatever you want and smelling the fresh tomatoes, garlic, herbs, and feta, all coming together and setting their aroma free. If you could feel the smell, it would feel like the warm arms of your Mother who just made the best food with all her love.

ingredients

  • FETA CHEESE. If you don't like feta cheese, you can use regular white cheese with the same consistency as feta. I have used Turkish white cheese before, and it tastes as good as the feta version.
  • TOMATOES. Cherry and grape tomatoes are perfect for the recipe. I recommend using colorful grape tomatoes because every color tastes different. The combination of sweet and sour tomatoes is just on point.
  • OLIVES. Green and black pitted olives.
  • CAPERS. They are essential in every kitchen. They bring a dish to a whole other level.
  • GARLIC CLOVES. Big juicy garlic cloves.
  • OLIVE OIL. good quality native olive oil.
  • COCONUT CREAM. These are the perfect ingredients to make the dish creamy. I know there's cheese in it, but believe me, the saltiness of the cheese and the creamy, sweet coconut cream are heavenly.
  • THYME. fresh or stored thyme.
  • SALT. It is good quality sea salt or pink salt. But just a sprinkle, as the cheese contains a lot of salt.
  • OREGANO. The smell of Italian oregano is as good as it tastes.
  • CHILI FLAKES. To spice it up.
  • PASTA. I love rigatoni for this dish, but you can use whatever pasta you prefer.
