pasta with sweet potato sauce

March 29, 2012

I made a recipe last night that was pretty stellar. Amazing really.

Not to brag or anything.

Okay okay, yes to brag. It isn’t often that I get in the kitchen with just a vague idea of how I want something to turn out and then in fact it does.

After grabbing my favorite lunch yesterday I wanted something different for dinner.

And carby. Me want carbs? Shocker.

But even this carb meal made the husband smile. As a self-proclaimed meat-a-tarian that was huge. (And okay he miiiiiight have added chicken to his but it still wasn’t the normal meaty dinner he would pack into his belly.)

Pasta with Sweet Potato Sauce

Serves 6

1 package of pasta (any shape)

1 small onion, chopped

2 Tbsp butter

2 cups almond milk

2 sweet potatoes

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

1 cup frozen peas

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Peel potatoes and chop into similar size pieces. Place in boiling in water until potatoes are tender. When done, drain and mash roughly with a fork.

Bring another large pot of water to boil. Salt. Add pasta when water is boiling and cook to doneness. Drain. Keep warm.

Saute a chopped onion in butter until brown and carmelized.

Into a blender add onion, parmesan cheese, sweet potatoes, and almond milk. Puree until smooth.

Toss with pasta. Add peas and mix together.


Try not to lick the remaining sweet potato sauce from the blender. Try really hard. If you succeed. You’re better than me.

 Oh this was good.

Like reallllllllllllllllllly good.

Try it.

      I had to get something green in there. And seriously I could have skipped the pasta all together and just eaten the sauce for dinner!
