How can I gain weight with a sensitive gut?

I'm coming off an illness (a parasite) and lost fifteen pounds. I'm naturally slender anyway, and so am now looking--and feeling--on the verge of frail. Any advice on how to put the weight back on in a healthy way?
Other things to consider:
- I'm on a pretty strict food budget, so cheaper is better.
- The parasite left my guts tender, so hard to digest foods (e.g. cheeses) can be an issue. Also, meals that are too big can sometimes cause problems, so pounds of rice and beans probably would be bad.
Thanks in advance. If anybody has specifically been through this with parasites, any words of recovery wisdom would be totally appreciated.
