Italian Sweet Potato Noodles

Italian Sweet Potato NoodlesWhen you’re craving a satisfying Italian meal, but don’t want to load up on heavy pasta, turn to your spiralizer for a quick and easy fix. Available inexpensively online and in kitchen stores, a spiralizer will turn regular vegetables into faux-noodles, that will incorporate seamlessly into your cooking. Sweet potatoes are rich in vitamin A, beta-carotene, and fiber, and are delicious served with a homemade tomato sauce.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • ½ yellow onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 10 oz. can tomato puree
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2-3 large sweet potatoes, peeled
  • Shredded mozzarella and fresh chopped basil to serve


  1. In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, and sauté for 3-4 minutes until starting to soften. Add the tomato puree and garlic, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for 15 minutes, and add some fresh chopped basil off the heat to finish.
  2. Using a spiralizer, turn the sweet potatoes into noodles, and cook in a pan over medium heat with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Add a pinch of salt and cook for 6-8 minutes, until tender but not falling apart.
  3. To serve, divide the noodles between two plates, and top with sauce, shredded mozzarella, and fresh basil. Enjoy!
