I have modified this classic bolognese dish so that it's not only low FODMAP, but it also contains some more vegetables (disguised), for the fussy eaters in my family and possibly in yours too.
Cuisine: Italian modified low FODMAP and with sneaky vegetables
Serves: 4-6
  • 1 medium/large carrot, trimmed
  • 2 cups broccoli head
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 medium celery stick (this quantity is low FODMAP)
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary leaves, finely chopped
  • 10 basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons onion infused olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons garlic infused olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 500g (1.1 lbs) lean beef mince (or half beef and half pork)
  • 400g (2 cups) canned chopped tomatoes
  • 100g (1 cup) Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 500g (17oz) low FODMAP tagliatelle or other pasta of your choice
  1. Using a food processor chop finely carrot, broccoli, spinach and celery
  2. In a large pan heat the onion infused oil and fry the chopped vegetables until they are soft
  3. Add the minced meat and stir well to break any lumps in the meat
  4. Cook until browned
  5. Add the basil, rosemary, oregano and bay leaves
  6. Stir in the tinned tomatoes
  7. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and cover
  8. Cook until the sauce is thickened, if too thick, stir in a little low FODMAP stock
  9. Add salt and pepper to taste
  10. Add garlic infused oil at the end and remove bay leaves
  11. In a large pan cook your favourite low FODMAP pasta in salted boiling water following the direction on the packet
  12. When the pasta is cooked drain it and put it back in the pan
  13. Toss the bolognese sauce in the pasta
  14. Serve it with grated Parmesan sprinkled over each individual plate
This recipe will make 4 portions as a main, or 6 smaller portions if there is also a second course.





About Larah

I have been suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome for many years, but it took a longtime to get a diagnosis, since then I have been following a low FODMAP diet, which has changed my life for the better. This is my story and experience with IBS and the low FODMAP diet.

  1. That amount of oil would make it so greasy and it would make my IBS worse. I don’t use any extra oil at all, using chives for onion flavour.

    • Thanks for your comment Elizabeth. The extra virgin infused oil in this recipe (per serving), should be tolerated by most IBS sufferers, also I use premium minced meat, so that it’s a lean, not very fatty meat at all, which also helps. Sure you can use other herbs and spices to give taste, but as most Italian people…. I do love my extra virgin olive oil. 😉
