A classic low FODMAP pasta pesto with chicken. A delicious fast dinner! Ready in 20 min. Gluten-free, lactose-free and vegetarian option


  • 160 g gluten-free spaghetti or penne
  • 250 g chicken breast (for a vegetarian version you can use a low FODMAP meat replacement, such as Quorn pieces)
  • 120 g zucchini
  • 200 g oyster mushrooms or canned mushrooms
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • Pepper and salt
  • 4 tbsp low FODMAP pesto
  • 90 g lactose-free crème fraîche
  • Grated cheese to taste


  1. Bring a pan with water to boil and cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package.
  2. Cut the chicken breast into pieces. Heat some oil in a pan and fry the chicken, while you stir regularly, until cooked on all sides.
  3. Cut the zucchini and oyster mushrooms into pieces. If you use canned mushrooms, make sure that you drain and rinse them well.
  4. Add the vegetables to the chicken and fry for a few minutes until the zucchini has softened. Season with pepper, salt and oregano.
  5. Make the pesto with this recipe
  6. Add 4 tbsp of pesto and the crème fraîche to the pan. Stir together and leave to simmer for a few minutes until the sauce is warm.
  7. Drain the pasta and divide the pasta over two plates. Put the chicken-pesto sauce on top and garnish the low FODMAP pasta pesto with some grated cheese to taste.


Instead of the zucchini and mushrooms you can also use other low FODMAP veggies, such as 150 g bell pepper or cherry tomatoes.
