Having been a vegetarian for a number of years, particularly while at university, I used to eat a lot of beans on toast. As beans are a no go on the low FODMAP diet, and with most sauces containing added onion or garlic, I’ve always been on the lookout for alternative options. Fortunately I was recently sent some gluten free pasta shapes to try from Garofalo. This included a hoop-shaped pasta called Annelini, which as soon as I saw them, I knew they’d make the best Spaghetti Hoops!
Most tinned spaghetti hoops contain onion powder so to replace this flavour I have used asafoetida – a low FODMAP spice which smells and tastes like onion! I only used a small amount as it has a very strong flavour. I first used it in my Breakfast Eggs recipe which you may also like to try.
If you haven’t heard of the Garofalo pasta range, check out my recipes for my Chilli King Prawn Pasta and Courgette and Bacon Casarecce Pasta. I love the unique shapes they offer and the texture and flavour of the quinoa, corn and brown rice pasta. The entire Garofalo gluten free range is available from Ocado, and if you’d like to shop their range just click here.
This recipe is tummy friendly (it’s free from gluten, dairy, onion and garlic), it’s a great substitute for beans on toast and it’s an incredibly tasty, yet healthy lunch recipe. I’m often asked for lunch ideas and this is one of my new staples. If you want to double the quantities in the recipe, you can always refrigerate the leftovers and heat up the following day for a quick and easy meal.
Spaghetti Hoops on Toast
- 100 g Garofalo gluten free annelini pasta
- 100 g Tomato passata
- ¼ tsp Asafoetida
- ½ tsp Paprika
- 20 ml Water
- ½ tsp Sugar
- In a pan of boiling water, add the Garofalo annelini pasta and cook for 6-7 minutes.
- While the pasta cooks, mix together the rest of the ingredients for the sauce and heat on the hob for a few minutes until cooked through.
- Drain the annelini pasta, then stir it into the tomato-based sauce.
- Season with salt and pepper, then serve on top of gluten free toast and a handful of grated cheese.
I hope you enjoy my gluten free and low FODMAP spaghetti hoops on toast, and as always let me know if you make them! If there are any other recipes you’d like to recreate, let me know in the comments below.
