Black Pepper and Honey Baked Feta with Tomato Confit and Wine Reduction Pasta

One of my all-time favorite food bloggers, What’s Gaby Cooking, released a new cookbook in the Spring of last year, Eat What You Want, and it’s FULL of delicious recipes, highly recommend!! One of those is a black pepper and honey baked feta, it’s SO good and I’ve been making for a year!! After seeing many variations of this pasta on the internet, I wanted to have my own go at it! It’s too good for how easy it is to make!

I’m not the original creator, I just modified it to work for our family! Let me know if you give it a try!

There isn’t measurements because I don’t measure, ha! Seasoning is subjective so use what feels right! I used a Trader Joe’s butter but usually I’d use Kerrygold. For the chardonnay, I used about a cup.. but again, do what feels right! Yes, kids can eat this! The alcohol burns off in the reduction, the longer it simmers, the more it does. I simmered mine for about 25-30 minutes and you can tell when it evaporates/burns off. My kids loved this meal!
