  • 1 Box Rotini Pasta
  • 2 7oz Blocks Feta Cheese
  • 2 10oz Packages Cherry Tomatoes

We are taking a shot at the viral feta pasta from social media, but doing it the only way we know how...Hot & Fast. The first thing you'll want to do is light your fire basket. We recommend using Blues Hog Lump Charcoal for a great, clean smoke flavor. 

While your Gateway is heating up, start your pasta. We used rotini, but you can use penne or rigatoni. Whatever shape you like your noodles. Follow the instruction found on the box until the pasta is fully cooked.

Coating pan of feta and tomatoes with Bold & Beefy Seasoning.

In a pan, place the block of feta in the center and surround it with your grape tomatoes and garlic cloves. Coat everything with a drizzle of olive oil and your choice of seasoning and herbs. We used Blues Hog Bold & Beefy Seasoning and thyme. Place pan in your 300º Gateway and let cook for 30 minutes. 

Be careful to not leave it in too long for it to get overly smoked. The tomatoes should look soft and the cheese should be golden on the edges

Away from the heat, you'll want to mix up the cheese and tomatoes, being sure all the tomatoes are crushed. Add in your pasta and spinach, using a folding motion to fully coat the pasta and distribute the spinach. Cover with foil to let the pasta cool and the spinach to soften. Give it about 5 minutes and it'll be ready to serve up!
