Sweet Potato Spaghetti

I love sweet potatoes, and this is one of my favorite sweet potato dishes. It comes together very quickly and is a little different than the regular lunch fare around here. If you want it to be more savory, add rosemary.

Sweet Potato Spaghetti

1 medium sweet potato
1/3 cup minced yellow onion
2 garlic cloves
Olive oil
Dash salt
Dash pepper
Grated Parmesan cheese, to taste
1/2 tsp dried rosemary (optional)

Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain.

Peel and dice sweet potato. Mince onion and garlic.

In a small frying pan, combine approx. 2 Tbsp olive oil and diced sweet potato. Cook, stirring occasionally, until potato pieces become slightly soft. Add onion and garlic. Continue cooking until sweet potatoes begin to brown and are soft.

Combine sweet potato mixture, drained spaghetti, salt, pepper, and rosemary in a serving bowl. Toss. Add more olive oil if desired. Top with grated Parmesan cheese.

Serves 2.

So delicious! How have I never heard of this before?!?

I also cooked some bacon, which I crumbled on top of the portions, with the parm :)

I love spaghetti since I was a child. My mom always cooks me, my brothers and my sister whenever it's our birthday or other special occasions that needs celebrating. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Now I can cook for my mom.
