  • Remove from the oven and use a spatula or the back of a spoon to burst any cherry tomatoes that did not burst while baking. Then gently break apart the feta and mix in the basil with everything else until mixed to be creamy and delicious! You may need to squish the feta to better incorporate it. Top with a little cracked black pepper or red pepper flakes if desired!
