Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and pull out a 9x13 baking dish.
Fill the baking dish with cherry tomatoes and garlic cloves. Place the block of Greek feta cheese in the center of the dish.
Combine the olive oil, red wine vinegar, Italian seasoning, sea salt, red pepper flakes, and onion powder in a bowl and whisk together. Pour over the entire dish and add a sprinkle of red pepper flakes directly on the block of feta cheese.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the tomatoes have completely cooked and the feta cheese has melted.
While the dish is baking, cook pasta according to directions in salty water. Reserve ¾ cup of pasta water when draining.
Once the dish is done in the oven, crush feta, tomatoes, and garlic cloves with a fork. Stir everything together and then stir in the pasta. Check on the consistency and taste, and add in whatever amounts of pasta water you might need to improve either.
Top with fresh basil leaves (optional garnish) and then plate and serve.
