Our Spin on the Baked Feta Pasta Recipe - BBQ Feta Pasta!

Tiger King, sourdough bread, TikTok dances and baked feta pasta. Just to name a few.

As we celebrate a year since the global pandemic began, it's hard not to look back and see what transpired over the past 365(ish) days. Including those things that went viral. 

I will admit, we binged Tiger King as fast as we could. We got a quarantine puppy. And most recently, we made the baked feta pasta recipe.

But, due to a lack of oven in our house we were forced to put our own spin on it.

So without further ado, I give to you... BBQ Feta Pasta.

A lack of oven has really forced us to get creative with what we make. And with the global pandemic and stay at home orders, we've had nothing but time to perfect our BBQ skills. Homemade pizza, Thanksgiving dinner roast, mac n' cheese, banana bread... just a few of the things that we have successfully cooked on the grill. And now, we can officially say we've 'been there, tried that' with the baked feta pasta recipe that went viral on social media. 

And we also now know just WHY it went viral on social media. It's easy to make with minimal ingredients and cooking time. A true one pot meal that your kids will LOVE. Oh ya, and it's freakin' delicious. Check out how we did it on the BBQ below.

BBQ Feta Pasta Recipe


  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes
  • large chunk of feta cheese
  • 5 whole gloves garlic, smashed
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • dried italian seasoning
  • fresh basil, thinly chopped
  • pasta of your choice, cooked to al dente and drained


  1. Turn up the BBQ burners to high.
  2. In a BBQ safe baking dish (we used a Pyrex), add cherry tomatoes. Toss in olive oil.
  3. Add feta cheese to the centre of the dish. Drizzle with olive oil, add smashed garlic cloves and salt, pepper and dried italian seasoning (amount to your liking).
  4. Once the BBQ reaches approximately 450F, turn down the centre to low. 
  5. Place the baking dish in the middle of the grill and close the lid.
  6. Allow to cook, checking every 10 minutes. 
  7. While tomatoes and cheese are cooking, thinly slice the basil.
  8. Cook the pasta to al dente.
  9. At approximately 30 minutes, turn off the BBQ. Mix the tomatoes and cheese. Add the pasta and mix until combined. Sprinkle with fresh basil.
  10. Enjoy!
