Mediterranean Pasta is a quick an easy recipe featured on my new meal planning program, EatLove, and written by fellow Dietitian and Chef Ranelle Kirchner.  This recipe is packed with fiber and healthy fat and is a Low FODMAP recipe for those working through digestive issues such as gas and bloating.

This recipe is also very versatile. A variety of pastas could be used such as Gluten Free rice or quinoa/corn to keep it a Low FODMAP recipe. Other options include a whole wheat or bean based noodle. If you don’t care for eggplant and zucchini, change the vegetable choice to broccoli, carrots, or bell peppers. The homemade sauce gives it an authentic flavor!
