Hoping to open a FODMAPS cafe one day with delicious food that people with intolerances, like me, can actually eat!

Recipe for leftover…pasta – Tuna and Corn Pasta

TunandCornPastaAfter making my tasty Chicken Arrabiata the other day, I found myself with all of this leftover gluten free pasta. Grrr. At least the San Remo brand tastes okay once re-heated, unlike many other brands I’ve tried! I thought I’d use the leftover pasta for an easy lunch dish. And all I needed was a couple of ingredients from the cupboard and fridge…it’s so simple, yet so yum!

You can also cook the pasta fresh – the recipe will still work perfectly. 🙂

Ingredients (Serves 2)

2 cups of cooked San Remo gluten free pasta

1 x 310 gram can of corn kernels, drained

1 x 95g can of tuna in springwater, drained

2 tablespoons of Praise egg mayonnaise

1 tablespoon of lime juice

Method

1. Re-heat the leftover pasta in the microwave for 1 minute. (Gluten free pasta never tastes good when cold!)

2. Throw the pasta into a large bowl along with the corn, tuna, mayonnaise and lime juice.

3. Mix everything together and serve.

So easy, right? What do you do with your leftover pasta?

Chicken Arrabiata

IChickenArrabiata pulled out some chicken thighs from the freezer this morning and needed some inspiration…so I looked through my cookbooks and found a delicious-sounding pasta recipe called ‘Chicken Arrabiata’ in my Hamlyn ‘200 Chicken Recipes’ book. As usual, I had to make a few adjustments to make it FODMAPS friendly (i.e. remove the onion and garlic) but the final product was very tasty and my husband licked his bowl clean – which is always a good sign! Our 15 month old daughter also gobbled it all up, so you know it’s also family friendly.

I did a quick Google search for what ‘arrabiata’ means – and apparently it means ‘angry’ because the dish packs a nice punch of heat and spice. The dish I made this evening wasn’t too spicy, but I guess it comes down to the Cook and how much spice you add!

Ingredients (Serves 4)

4 chicken thighs, boned, skinned, cut into cubes

1 teaspoon Portuguese Chicken spice or Paprika, to taste

1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (or dried crushed chilies), to taste

400g (13oz) can chopped tomatoes

250ml Massels Salt Reduced Liquid Chicken Stock

4 cups of San Remo Gluten Free pasta

Olive oil

Salt and pepper

Method

1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and add the chicken. Fry for 5 minutes until lightly browned.

2. Mix in the Portuguese Chicken spice and Cayenne Pepper and cook for 1 minute, then stir in the tomatoes, chicken stock and a little salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for 20 minutes until the chicken is tender. (And it was oh-so-tender tonight!)

Meanwhile…

3. Fill a second saucepan with water, bring to the boil, then add the pasta. Simmer for 10 minutes until just tender, then drain.

4. Divide the pasta among four bowls and pour in the Chicken Arrabiata sauce.

5. Enjoy!!
