  • 12 ounces (340 g) gluten-free farfalle pasta, such as Jovial brand
  • 8 ounces (225 g) jarred roasted red peppers, preferably fire roasted, such as Muir Glen
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) Garlic-Infused Oil (page 000) made with olive oil or purchased garlic infused olive oil, such as FODY Foods brand
  • 3/4 cup (24 g) roughly chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1/4 cup (34 g) small capers in brine, drained
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground coarse black pepper


  1. Bring 5 quarts (4.7 L) of salted water to a boil in a large pot. Add pasta and cook, stirring frequently. While pasta is cooking, drain the roasted peppers and cut into 1/2 inch (12 mm) wide strips. If there are any seeds you can flick them away with your knife; set aside.
  2. Cook pasta till it is “al dente”, meaning that it should still be slightly firm and not mushy. Drain well.
  3. Place pasta back in pot. Add the garlic-infused oil, parsley, capers and roasted peppers and toss gently but thoroughly. Season liberally with salt and coarse ground pepper as you toss; serve immediately.



  • Read the labels for the roasted peppers to scan for any FODMAPs. We like the 365 Everyday Value Organic Fire Roasted Red Peppers from Whole Foods. The ingredients are simply organic roasted red peppers, water, sea salt, citric acid. Beware of jarred roasted peppers that might contain garlic.

Variations: There are many easy ways to provide additional flavor and texture to this dish. Consider some chopped Kalamata olives, crumbled feta (the dish will no longer be vegan, but will be vegetarian) or a generous sprinkling of grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese (ditto re: vegan/vegetarian) - or any combination of the above. Fresh chopped tomatoes and fresh basil are perfect to add if making at the end of summer when these are at their peak.
