Ingredients

  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes, divided
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 1 (12-ounce) jar roasted red pepper, drained and chopped
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves, loosely packed and chopped

Directions

Step 6 –Bake the feta mixture until the tomatoes start to burst, about 35 minutes.

Step 7 –Carefully transfer the feta mixture from the oven and stir in the garlic, the roasted red peppers, and 1/2 of the basil leaves, breaking up the feta and the tomatoes until a creamy sauce forms.
