Place cherry tomatoes in an oven-safe baking dish and add olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss together until well combined.


Add block of feta cheese in the middle of the baking dish. Top with olive oil and add lemon zest and oregano. 


Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until tomatoes are soft and feta is soft-melted. 


Once done, add in fresh garlic, basil and chili flakes and mix together until you have a perfectly uniformed sauce. 


Add in cooked pasta in the sauce and toss until well-combined. If it is too thick, add a couple of tablespoons of reserved pasta water to help loosen the sauce.
