Balsamic Sweet Potato Pasta Recipe

It’s Meatless Monday! Herb and I don’t always stick to this, but we do make an effort to have at least 1 meatless meal a week, and we like to do it on Monday so we can exclaim that it’s Meatless Monday. My friend Lindsay at Vegan Yumminess would be proud!

Herb and I are both big fans of the sweet potato, and we make our favorite sweet potato fries quite often. I’m not sure that I would’ve ever thought to mix sweet potatoes and pasta before, but, like they say, necessity is the mother of invention!

We had some leftover noodles from a previous recipe (I believe it was our delicious Shrimp Alfredo!) and we also had some sweet potatoes that needed to be eaten. I wondered to myself if there were any recipes that combined sweet potatoes and pasta, and of course looked for an answer by Googling  ”Sweet Potato Pasta”. I found this recipe, happened to have all the ingredients in the house, and decided to go for it!

This was a unique pasta dish, but we both enjoyed it! It is very light, and the flavor is subtle but yummy all the same! We give this recipe 4/5 herbs.
