MEATLESS MONDAY: SWEET POTATO CREAM PASTA with CRISPY KALE

Here is another good one for Meatless Monday.
I cooked enough for 4 – keeping with my ‘cook once, eat twice’ philosophy –
as I have another recipe ready for the leftovers….
 
SWEET POTATO CREAM PASTA with CRISPY KALE
1-1/2 cups cooked sweet potato, mashed (10 minutes in the pressure cooker)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter
1 shallot, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp flour
1-1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup freshly grated Romano cheese, plus more for garnish
1/2 pounds of pasta (I used spaghetti)
Crispy kale (link to recipe)
Cook pasta, drain and set aside.
In saucepan, heat butter and oil.
Add shallots and garlic a saute until soft and fragrant.
Stir in flour and stir until slightly browned.
Gradually add milk and sweet potatoes stirring until thickened.
If too thick add more milk.
Add Romano.
Add pasta directly to sauce and let sit a minute or two.
Pile into individual bowls.
Top with crispy kale and extra Romano.

…Yum!!!
 
 
 
Can’t wait to try out my leftover recipe tomorrow.
