LOW FODMAP DIET GREEK TOMATO PASTA Recipe

When I saw a photo of a recipe just like this one in a grocery store ad—no recipe included—I knew I had to re-create it myself. And I did! This low-FODMAP Greek-inspired pasta features cherry tomatoes that are sautéed until they blister, and they’re delicious when they pop in your mouth. It’s especially good when it’s served alongside a simple baked tilapia: Sprinkle tilapia fillets with lemon juice, kosher salt, black pepper, and paprika and bake at 425°F (220°C, or gas mark 7) for about 10 minutes while you prepare the pasta.

YIELD: 4 SERVINGS
