Once again inspired by another blog post (this time the Civilized Caveman), I wanted to try out some sweet potato pasta.
The original recipe makes the pasta tagliatelle/fettuccine style, but I felt I wanted a creamy spaghetti-like dish, so here’s what I did:
• 3-4 Sweet Potatoes.
• 4 tbsp Butter.
• 1 cup Creme Fraiche (I used one flavored with roasted garlic and thyme).
• 1/4 cup Cream.
• 1-2 tsp dried Basil.
• Salt and crushed Black Pepper to taste…
• Vegetable spiralizer (I’ve got a Lurch Spiralo and think it’s great! (…and I’ve got no affiliation with the company I linked to).)
• Large pot.
Peel the sweet potatoes, and cut off the ends (needed to get a good grip with the spiralizer, and you probably also need to cut each sweet potato in two pieces to make the fit (of course depending on the size of the potato…)).
Cut them into spaghetti using the spiralizer.
Melt the butter in the pot over medium heat and add the sweet potato spaghetti.
After a few minutes add the creme fraiche and let it melt, then add the cream and spices and gently stir until all spaghetti is coated in creamy sauce.
Remove from heat once it got the texture you prefer.
Paleo? …if you skip the creamy sauce and follow the original recipe (see link at the beginning of the post).
LCHF? …yup (but liberal and should probably only be consumed occasionally and in moderation).
Enjoy and let me know what you think! :)
