Basic low FODMAP Pasta carbonara

by | All posts, All recipes

Carbonara is a delicious hight fat pasta dish and one of my absolute favorites. Here is how to make low FODMAP and just as delicious as usual.


  • 300 g of gluten free pasta
  • 250 ml og lactose free cream
  • 2 eggs
  • Spring onions
  • Bacon (cubes)
  • Cheddar or parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper

A really simple list of ingredients if you ask me, and the method is just as simple and easy. Everyone can make this recipe in only 20 minutes.


There are 2 things that makes a really good carbonara, an al dente pasta and a creamy sauce. These things want change when making it low FODMAP, not if you use this recipe anyways. Here are the method in

  1. Take a bowl out and mix cream, eggs and grated parmesan or cheddar cheese, a bit of salt and pepper.
  2. Put a pan on the stove and turn on the heat, poor on the bacon and fry it till it is crispy.
  3. Start heating som water, add salt and pasta when it is boiling and cook for 9-11 minutes or as indicated on the package. Make sure it does not get past the point of al dente by tasting it.
  4. Start chopping spring onions (only the green top) in fine pieces.
  5. When the bacon is done take it off on some paper towels to soak up the remaining fat. Clear the the pan from fat and add oil and spring onions.
  6. While spring onions are getting fried, the pasta should be done. Taste it and if it is done poor away the pasta water except for a couple of table spoons which you can now add to the pan with spring onions.
  7. Add pasta and sauce to the pan and heat it up.
  8. Right before serving the dish you can add the bacon or you can sprinkle it on top to keep 100% of the crisp, that is up to you.

Tip: while the dish is already delicious enough you can make even better by chopping up some parsley and sprinkle it on top of the pasta before serving it. This gives a nice and fresh taste to a high fat dish.
