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 sautéed in olive oil, a smoky, charred essence is imparted to the entire dish.  

 

Spiralize sweetpotatoes

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 tablesoons of Olive Oil to high heat.

Add the spiralized sweetpotatoes to the pan and sauté 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.
