This pasta bake recipe is filled with tomatoes, green peppers, red onion, feta cheese, and plenty of Greek flavors. This vegetarian meal is easy to assemble so you can get dinner in the oven in no time!

I love this recipe because you can chop your veggies while the pasta cooks and then everything is ready to go in the oven! It’s a great way to sneak extra veggies into your meal and this recipe filled with my favorite Greek flavors!

How to Make Baked Greek Pasta

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente. While the pasta cooks, chop your vegetables.

Add the cooked pasta, vegetables, seasoning, marinara sauce, and feta into a 9×13 inch pan.

Sprinkle with mozzarella. I prefer using fresh mozzarella, tearing it into pieces, and scattering on top. You can use shredded mozzarella if you prefer.

Bake until the cheese is melted and the vegetables are tender.

The Best Pasta for Baked Greek Pasta

I like using cavatappi noodles which are easy to toss with vegetables and sauce. I recommend shorter pasta shapes like ziti, rigatoni, or penne. The smaller shapes are also easy for little ones to enjoy. But you can use any shape you like.

Substitution Ideas

  • If you want to make this recipe gluten-free, you can use any gluten-free noodle. I like using chickpea pasta for extra protein!
  • You can use any color bell pepper you have on hand. You can also swap in any type of onion, although I like the mild flavors of red onion.
  • I prefer fresh mozzarella cheese but you can use shredded mozzarella if you like.
