In this Pellet Grill Feta Pasta recipe, we’re taken that popular TikTok pasta craze and ran with it. Wood-fired cooking gives this sauce such a unique flavor!

Traeger Baked Feta Pasta

If you are on the internets at all, which you clearly are since you are here, you’ve probably seen the viral TikTok Feta Pasta craze. I’m a brand new baby to TikTok, but when I heard that grocery stores across the COUNTRY were selling out of blocks of feta cheese, I knew I had to try it out.

Not SUPER into feta? That’s okay. Jeremiah isn’t either, and he was not super excited when I told him about this craze and didn’t really expect to like it, but wound up LOVING it.

How to make Traeger Feta Pasta

Here’s an overview on the steps to make this ultra-simple pasta recipe. Remember to use the recipe card at the bottom of the post when you’re cooking!

1

Preheat your grill

We roasted these at about 375°. Make sure to let it come all the way up to temp!

2

Toss the sauce ingredients into your pan

Put the feta, sliced tomatoes, red bell pepper, garlic, olive oil, wine, and seasonings into the pan.

3

Roast / Grill / Smoke

Toss the pan on the grill and shut the lid. Let it roast for at least 30-45 minutes, but check it periodically to make sure that it isn’t scorching over any hot spots.

4

Boil the pasta

Don’t be skimpy on that salt, either, when it comes to your pasta water. That’s the biggest mistake people make when preparing pasta, and it is something that is SO obvious. Once you know, you KNOW.

5

Toss them together

Take the pasta and toss in with the feta mixture until it is well-distributed. If you like things a little saucier, you can throw in some pasta water and/or a little heavy cream.

What should you serve with Feta Pasta?

We served this as a side dish next to some Traeger Grilled Lamb Chops. It was perfect, and went with the chops so well!

I wouldn’t hesitate to make this into a meal, either, with some Grilled Shrimp or a Grilled Chicken Breast on the side.

Spoiler alert – this pasta is JUST as good cold as it is hot, so you could easily serve this as a side at your next cookout too.

Pellet Grill Feta Pasta FAQ

Can you make this in the oven?

Yup! Most people do. I prefer to make it in my pellet grills because I LOVE the flavor of wood fired foods, but don’t let that stop you from whipping this up.

What can I substitute for the rubs?

If you don’t have all of the specific seasonings called for here, you can sub in a mixture of basil, garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes, and use fresh mushrooms instead of powdered.

What other additions or substitutions do I recommend?

This recipe is SO flexible, you can really take some liberties and make it your own. Add in fresh spinach, some spicy peppers, different rubs, some sliced zucchini, or whatever you can find in the fridge.
