Feta Baked in Olive Oil with Marinara, Red Onions and Oregano

Most of the recipes I blog about come from hours of just looking around the internet and finding something that looks good. When I find something, I'll add it to my "To Make" list and I usually pick 3-4 things off of the list when I make our weekly meal lists. When I saw this recipe from Oishii, I wrote down the ingredients and sent Neil out to buy them so we could have it for dinner that night.

This was delicious! It was so simple to put together but it was honestly one of the best things I have made. It's not often that the hubs is okay with a block of cheese for dinner but this is definitely one recipe he'll be okay with.

1 block of feta
extra virgin olive oil
jarred marinara sauce
red onion, diced
fresh oregano, chopped
salt and pepper
red pepper flakes

Preheat oven to 375ยบ. Place the feta in a shallow baking dish. Pour olive oil on and around the feta so that it almost covers the feta, but leaves the top uncovered. Add spoonfuls of marinara around the feta. Top the feta with the onion and oregano and season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Bake for 20 minutes, until the oil is bubbling and cheese is softened. Serve with sliced crusty bread. Enjoy!
