Our Low FODMAP Italian Quinoa Bake recipe is a hearty and delicious meatless dish that is packed with flavor and loaded with good-for-you ingredients like sweet potato, eggplant, fennel and quinoa. This Italian Quinoa Bake is made with Prego Traditional Sensitive Recipe Italian Sauce, which is made without onions or garlic so it is FODMAP friendly yet does not sacrifice on flavor. We love that everything, even the quinoa, which goes in uncooked, bakes right in the same dish, so there is no mess to clean up. Fontina cheese and fresh basil give this dish the perfect finishing touch.
