Sweet Potato Sauce with Ziti


Well Valentine’s day has come and gone- but this is no reason to stop the loving people!! So I am posting you another of my loves!! I love pasta ya… pasta for lunch- pasta for dinner- mmm the only thing is I don’t particularly like heavy sauces laden with cream and cheese. Yes I do eat these, but I feel so much better about my booty when I make a lighter sauce with ingredients you would not always think to use.  Pasta is also a wonderful option when Lenten season begins- our family cuts back considerably on meat and adds extra veggie plates, pasta and beans- oh how I love my beans. I can’t help it I’m a beaner! So to keep my girl’s excited about their meals I kick up the sauces. Today I bring you pasta sauce made from sweet potatoes- ya lovely right? The color, the taste was marvelous baby! I found long ziti at a nearby grocery store and my girls’ thought it looked cool so we bought it and sauced it up!! Another thing pasta comes in so many healthier versions now- so feel free to use what you like. Enjoy!!   



Isn’t the color just fab? I love the LONG noodle, but they were so hard to plate for pics and messy. But my girls’ like messy so this was right up their alley!!
As we sat down to eat my girl looked at her plate and said “They look like intestines,” They kill me!!
