This dish has a lot of ingredients compared to the last few, but all were checked to ensure they have no fodmap or are served in low fodmap quantities. One of my favorite aspects of this recipe (aside from being low fodmap) is the cheeses used! I love cheese and anytime I can safely add it in small quantities, it makes my meal so much more enjoyable.
While penne is my favorite pasta to have, gnocchi comes in at a close second. This recipe also has a few extra vegetables and small additives that make it seem like a lot of ingredients, but you don’t have to add everything listed if you don’t want to. For example, I know it may be hard for some people to find jap pumpkin, so it can simply be ignored.
One of my usual go to flavorings for a good chicken recipe is lemon pepper. While this isn’t lemon pepper, it still has a similar zest that gives this recipe a nice kick! Some of the ingredients included aren’t low fodmap by default and do require finding their low fodmap alternatives!
Vegetarian, gluten-free, and low fodmap, this recipe ticks a lot of boxes as far as diets go.

I mention that because mushrooms are listed in this recipe as an ingredient!
Have I mentioned how much I love cheesy dishes? Well here I am again, talking about how much I love cheese in my pasta dishes! This one is a great addition and while it’s not the same thing, you’ll notice some similarities with lasagna (maybe that’s why I like it so much).
While I’m not able to eat seafood, that doesn’t mean anyone who reads this can’t! I wanted to add in a seafood option for those of you who love it. Another plus to this recipe is that it’s a healthier option on top of being low fodmap. The spice in this dish will mostly come from the red pepper flakes so if you’re not a fan of the spicy aspect, I would remove them from the recipe.
It’s hard to go wrong with basil and garlic flavoring for a pasta dish. This dish obviously keeps it simple in regard to it’s seasonings and that’s why I love it. The odds of you already having most of the ingredients are high, making it easy to make and still being a delicious low fodmap meal.

This pasta recipe is a stretch and I put it on the list for those that want to be bold and try something new. I say ‘bold’ because this dish has some interesting ingredients like olives and anchovies. So, it should be obvious this isn’t a recipe to try if you’re not a fan of seafood, specifically anchovies.
