The original baked pasta recipe involves placing an entire block of feta in the center of a container of cherry tomatoes, baking it in the oven, and then combining it with cooked pasta.

Since the trend, Woolworths has also seen a huge demand for feta cheese since the baked feta pasta dish started circulating all over Facebook, Instagram and TikTok.

“The infamous TikTok pasta had seen feta and cherry tomatoes fly off Coles’ shelves. Feta sales are up nearly 20 percent,” a Coles spokeswoman told the Daily Mail Australia earlier.

Sales of cherry tomatoes have also skyrocketed, and for every 200g tub of red or gold Perino tomatoes, Coles is donating five cents to the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation — a nonprofit that teaches kids to adopt positive eating habits for life.

“The recipe couldn’t have gone viral at a better time because when people buy the tomatoes, they not only get TikTok power, they also support a very important cause,” the spokeswoman said.
