Okay maybe I am slow to pick up this trend? Apparently this was a viral TikTok craze a while back? Okay okay I admit it… I hate TikTok with a passion. So it was pretty unlikely I would have noticed it anyway!! Anyhoo I came across it a few weeks ago as a friend made it for us. It was DELICIOUS but covered in olive oil and various other high calorie ingredients… So being the recipe fairy that I am I needed to re create this in a heathy way to keep everyone happy. (I did it by the way lol)

IS THIS RECIPE SLIMMING WORLD FRIENDLY?
The team at Fatgirlskinny.net have created this recipe using 180g of feta cheese (4 portions of Healthy Extra A) so as long as you allow for a portion of Healthy Extra A this is estimated as being Syn free. If not please allow 6 Syns per serving. (Serves 4)
You may wonder why I didn’t just use the reduced fat feta cheese, meaning you could actually use more… WELL I tried it and it was terrible. It was watery and the taste was definitely not up to standard. 100% stick with the full fat feta to get this recipe as close to the original as possible.

- Place the block of feta in the middle of the dish with the tomatoes surrounding it.

- Meanwhile cook the pasta according to the packet instructions.
- Drain the pasta roughly, some pasta water is okay.
