Bowl of spinach artichoke feta pasta with shredded cheese
TikTok's 'Better Than Feta' Pasta Has Just 3 Trader Joe's Ingredients
A TikTok influencer developed a Trader Joe's-inspired upgrade to baked feta pasta that uses just three ingredients: TJ's spinach artichoke dip, fusilli pasta, and cherry tomatoes.
The recipe, from Mari Lebaron, involves adding a few packages of spinach and artichoke dip into a baking dish with cherry tomatoes, salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil.
Put it in the oven at 400 degrees F for 45 minutes. While the dip is baking, bring water to a boil on the stove, salt it, and add Trader Joe's fusilli pasta to cook until al dente.
Finally, add the drained pasta to the bubbling spinach and artichoke dip and tomato bake, stirring to combine. If it's too thick, add some pasta water to loosen the sauce.
The roasted cherry tomatoes impart a caramelized umami complement to the earthiness of the spinach and artichokes. Plus, the combination of dairy better coats the pasta.
