Sweet potato pasta

Postby ooby » Sat Aug 17, 2013 12:56 pm

That is what i made with the rehab team yesterday. Can't say i was impressed. Too bland for me but others' taste may differ.


300 g sweet potato,peeled and cut into small cubes
300g dried pasta
100g frozen peas
2 tbsp skimmed milk
150g low fat natural yoghurt
40g finely grated reduced fat hard cheese
pinch of ground black pepper


Cook sweet potato chunks in simmering water for 12-15 mins until tender. Drain well

Cook pasta in large saucepan according to packet instructions until tender. Drain well and return to saucepan.

Stir sweet potato and frozen peas through pasta.Add milk and yoghurt and heat gently for 1-2 minutes. Serve sprinkled with cheese and a little ground black pepper.


Could use butternut squash as an alternative to sweet potato

Add extra vegetable if you like,such as chopped red pepper and sweetcorn.

I would probably add red pepper and garlic, not use the sweet potato but add something like a little chopped chorizo (if you heat it in a frying pan, excess fat comes out and you can keep it in the fridge, then use a teaspoonful to add flavour to sauces or veg.). thanks for your recipes: they're a good starting-point for other ideas. We're having tortillas tonight: sliced spicy pork in a wrap with salsa, refried beans and maybe some lettuce (if I can be bothered to go out and buy some). Nice and easy, hugs xxx

Does not sound too inviting to me either. I love pasta but the sweet potatoes don't sound good in it.
