Pasta is one dish we have experimented with thousands of times. From a classic red arrabbiata sauce to the slightly more difficult white bechamel, we have tried it all! Recently, we saw how a simple recipe of baked feta pasta has been taking the internet by storm. The viral yet delicious recipe is quite easy to make with a tray of cherry tomatoes, olive oil, feta cheese which is quickly baked and then mixed with boiled pasta. Several food bloggers have given the feta pasta their own spin, however, we have an entirely new pasta recipe you have to try! This stuffed pasta recipe is cheesy, gooey and the perfect way to start the weekend. Take a look:
The recipe was shared on Instagram by food blogger and photographer @thelebaneseplate, where it received over 1k likes. The blogger shared her own version of the stuffed pasta recipe which was originally shared by model and content creator Chrissy Teigen.
Rather than cooking the pasta in a flavourful sauce, the recipe first involved creating a delicious cheesy stuffing for the pasta shells. This was made with Ricotta cheese, pesto sauce, a few spices and an egg. Then, a tray was prepared with lots of Marinara sauce. The pasta shells were placed on top and drizzled with even more Mozarella cheese, and then baked. Several other food bloggers also tried the stuffed pasta recipe, which was shared multiple times on various social media websites.
