In a deep baking dish, place feta cheese in the center, and arrange tomatoes and garlic cloves with peel next to it (you can either chop the garlic or squeeze it through a press, but in that case it may burn when baked). Sprinkle the cheese and tomatoes with dried oregano or any other spices to taste (such as dried basil, Provencal herb mix, etc.), add ground pepper, place 2-3 sprigs of thyme on top of the cheese, and drizzle with olive oil. Put the dish with cheese and vegetables in the oven for 25-30 minutes at 190-200 degrees Celsius.

While the cheese and vegetables are baking, you can boil water and cook the pasta. You can use any type of pasta: macaroni, shells, spaghetti, spirals, etc. I like this dish with large shells, as the cheesy-tomato sauce gets trapped in their grooves, making the pasta even more delicious. Cook the pasta until tender in slightly salted water.
