Sweetpotato Noodles in Thai Basil Sauce

YOU GUYS!

This Sweetpotato Noodle dish is AMAZING!

I do have to brag… I think this is better than traditional pasta.  The flavors from the sweetpotato are not overwhelming and because they are sauteed in olive oil, a smoky, charred essence is imparted to the entire dish.  

 

You do have to put some work in, but trust me… it’s not that difficult.  I have this handy, dandy attachment for my Kitchen-Aid mixer and it does all the work for me!  I spiralized 3 sweetpotatoes for this recipe and it would serve 2 for a main dish, 4 as a side.

 

Heat a pan with 1-2 T. of Olive Oil to high heat 

 

Add the spiralized sweetpotatoes to the pan and saute for 5-7 minutes.  You want the potatoes to still have a little crunch to them, so in the tradition of pasta, let’s cook them al dente.  

 

You’ll see that the pieces will be charred, imparting a wonderful nutty flavor

 

Toss the Thai Basil Sauce with the noodles until coated…

 

Dish up and eat while warm….

 

Although I have to admit I ate some a few hours later straight from the fridge and it was amazing!

 

Here is the recipe for ya… Enjoy!
