Did you see that viral TikTok pasta recipe with feta and cherry tomatoes? Here is an even better spin on that viral dish that is sure to please everyone in the family!
My kids LOVE pasta! This dish is a great way to expose them to fresh seasonal vegetables in a rainbow of colors.
If you are a follower of the Amadio Ranch Blog, then you know I love recipes that are easy and customizable. I love that I can easily stop by my local farm in Phoenix, Arizona and find what I need. Even in Arizona, locally grown fruits and vegetables will often taste sweeter, less bitter, and richer than what you can find in the supermarket. In this version of the recipe, I used zucchini, golden cherry tomatoes, and onion, but it could easily be done with any squash or even eggplant! This is a great way to use up new items in your CSA basket or clean out the fridge!

Bake for 25-30 minutes, until tomates have burst and vegetables are tender.
Meanwhile, boil the pasta in water according to package directions. Reserve 1/4 cup pasta water. Drain and set aside.
When the vegetables and feta are done baking, combine the feta and pasta in a large bowl.
Stir the feta to dispersed over the pasta. Then add the vegetables and reserved pasta water. Stir gently to combine.

This recipe would also work well with yellow squash or eggplant!
It is also delicous cold as leftovers.
