Bacon & Olive Pasta

FODY foods pasta

FODY foods is a new kid on the low FODMAP block: ‘North America’s first FODMAP diet friendly food brand specifically designed for IBS relief’.

All products are certified low FODMAP by the Monash University, making eating low FODMAP convenient and hassle free.

I was lucky enough to sample some of the products they have to date. They currently only ship to America and Canada but are expanding into the UK soon – so watch this space!)

The first product I tried was their Marina pasta sauce, I made a simple pasta with bacon and olives which was delicious - it’s great not having to worry about garlic or onion being included in the jar!

What you need:

400g brown rice penne (or any other gluten free pasta)

200g bacon

250g black pitted olives 

1 jar of FODY foods marinara sauce

4 spring onions (green part only), finely chopped

Salt and pepper, to taste

Chopped parsley, to serve

Grated lactose free cheese, to serve

What to do:

Boil water in a large pot, add salt and pasta. While cooking, stir is well with tongs. Cook until al dente. Drain and rinse 

In a pan on medium heat, fry chopped bacon until crispy, set aside

Add spring onion to pan and sauté until soft, add pasta sauce, olives and bacon. Season with salt and pepper and stir well

Stir through pasta and serve with parsley and lactose free cheese.
