This is a twist on the viral baked feta pasta trend which by this point, I think everyone knows and loves. I also made a baked boursin version which is just as delicious!

This gorgeous Greek baked feta orzo is made with tomatoes, peppers, orzo, olives, and of, course, creamy baked feta. The perfect easy and delicious weeknight meal!


  • 2 red peppers
  • 300g cherry tomatoes
  • 200g feta cheese
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 300g orzo
  • 30g olives
  • 10g parsley
  • 10g dill
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • (optional) pickled red onions to serve


  1. Preheat your oven to 200C | 395F.
  2. Roughly chop your red peppers (discard the stem and seeds) and add the peppers, garlic cloves (peeled but whole) and your cherry tomatoes to an oven-proof baking dish.
  3. Drizzle over 1.5tbsp of the olive oil and the seasonings and stir to combine the vegetables.
  4. Add your feta (reserve some to crumble over the finished dish), then drizzle with the rest of the oil.
  5. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, cook your orzo according to the packet instructions.
  7. When the vegetables and feta is done, you could either transfer it to a blender and blend until smooth, or simply mash the feta and tomatoes into a chunkier sauce. In the photos, I've blended until smooth.
  8. Add the orzo and stir it in. Squeeze over the lemon juice.
  9. Top the dish with your fresh herbs, olives, and red onions.


This dish could be made as a one-pot dish - you could add the orzo and 500ml of stock to your baking dish and bake for 30 minutes.
