Sweet Potato Pasta

I will keep this one short and sweet so you can enjoy this delicious recipe. But a huge shootout to the Awesome Ashley Tudor, Author of the awesome book Sweet Potato Power for this recipe. I wish I could be half as creative with sweet potatoes as she is with the recipes in her book but she definitely piqued my interest. I am currently on the hunt for some purple sweet potatoes just because I want to eat purple mashed potatoes haha. Huge dork right here. But for real, sometimes us Paleo peeps get a little bored with our preparations or meals with our starches and Ashley does an amazing job of spicing that back up. Plus the rest of the book that teaches you all about how amazing sweet potatoes are for you. I read it, but I am honestly just too preoccupied drooling over my photo to write anything else besides its just AWESOME. That being said, head over and pick your copy up, and please invite me over for dinner. You can also check out her site HERE.

  1. Thanks for the recipe. I adlibbed a little and replaced your cinnamon and sage and added some yellow curry powder and a half a can of light organic coconut cream to ‘sauce it up’ a little bit.
    I then served it as a side to some good old Aussie Kangaroo steaks served rare with steamed broccolli.
    Winner winner caveman dinner!

  2. I didn’t have a mandoline, so I used my potato peeler. That got them a bit thin and I ended up with crunchy, almost too well done “noodles”. They were still quite tasty. I love cinnamon and sage.
    Worth another try :)

  3. WOW – my entire family loved this. My potatoes were shred on the cheese grater (I don’t have a mandolin), but I tossed them in the pan with fresh brussel sprouts and served them with your cinnamon-sage chicken and grilled citrus beets. The most brilliant dinner we’ve had in awhile!! Love the cinnamon-sage.

  4. George, I just saw this recipe on Pinterest. They sound delicious! I was wondering if they would work well in a casserole type of dish…so far, that’s one thing I really struggle with regarding to eating paleo–stuff I can mix together and toss in the oven on busy nights.
