Description of Fody's Gluten-Free Pasta Salad with Creamy Balsamic

Fody Balsamic Vinaigrette can be used straight out of the bottle, as a Low FODMAP marinade, or combined with something creamy, like lactose-free yogurt – as we did here. It is perfect for a large bowl of gluten-free pasta salad with fresh herbs. This makes for a great cookout side dish!

A note on storage: I am a stickler for freshly prepared pasta salad. I do not like pasta salads that have been refrigerated, but I know I am pickier than most. I find that cold pasta has an overly firm texture that I am not fond of. If you are going to refrigerate the pasta salad overnight in an airtight container, cook it a bit softer than al dente, and, please bring the salad to room temperature before serving, which can take several hours.

Fody's Gluten-Free Pasta Salad with Creamy Balsamic Ingredients:

  • 12-ounces (340 g) Low FODMAP, gluten-free pasta, such as rotini or rotelle
  • 7-ounces (200 g) small diced pattypan squash
  • 7-ounces (200 g) small dice zucchini
  • 12 grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup (32 g) chopped scallion greens
  • ¼ cup (8 g) chopped fresh basil leaves
  • ¼ cup (8 g) chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • ¾ cup (180 ml) Fody Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • ¾ cup (192 g) lactose-free plain yogurt
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

        Directions for Fody's Gluten-Free Pasta Salad with Creamy Balsamic

        Cook the gluten-free pasta in a large pot of salted water until al dente. Drain, rinse with cool water, and drain again. Place in a large mixing bowl. Add the pattypan, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, and Low FODMAP herbs (scallion greens, basil, and parsley) and toss everything together.

        In a small bowl, whisk together the Fody Balsamic Vinaigrette and lactose-free yogurt and season to taste with salt and pepper. Dress the pasta and veggies with the Low FODMAP dressing to your liking; you might not use it all. Preferably serve immediately, or refrigerate overnight in an airtight container – but please bring to room temperature before serving.
