Low FODMAP pasta pesto salad with tomatoes and goat cheese

A super easy recipe, but it is so tasty to have for a healthy lunch or light dinner. I have really been in a spring mood for the past few weeks, even though the weather in the Netherlands is still very cold and rainy.

Still, I enjoy eating light recipes these days. This low FODMAP pasta pesto salad is great to make for a dinner party, barbecue or pot luck dinner. Pesto and goat cheese go very well together and I am sure everybody will enjoy the salad!

This low FODMAP pasta pesto salad is delicious for a barbeque, dinner party or Easter brunch! Gluten-free and cow’s milk free.


  • 200 g gluten-free pasta
  • 100 g roma tomatoes*
  • 60 g soft goat cheese
  • 2 tbsp low FODMAP pesto (click for the recipe)
  • Optional: rocket lettuce

For the pesto

  • 15 g fresh basil, stems removed
  • 20 g pine nuts
  • 30 g parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Pepper and salt


  1. Boil the pasta according to the instructions on the package.
  2. Make the pesto with this recipe.
  3. Cut the tomatoes into pieces.
  4. Drain the pasta and stir 2 tbsp of pesto through the pasta.
  5. I prefer eating the salad when it is still lukewarm, so I immediately added the other ingredients and ate it. You can also leave the pasta to cool down and eat it cold.
  6. Divide the tomatoes on top and crumble the goat cheese on top. Serve on top of some rocket lettuce.


*In 2022 tomatoes have been retested and are now limited low FODMAP. Roma tomatoes are low FODMAP up to 75 gram per serving, common tomatoes up to 65 gram per serving. Cherry tomatoes are low FODMAP in even a smaller amount. Therefore I advise using common or roma tomatoes.

    Used your pesto, which is quickly becoming our new addiction… 🙂
    Subbed vegan feta for the goat cheese.

    A delightful and belly pleasing meal.
